Competition: Win an Alphonse Mucha: In Quest of Beauty exhibition catalogue

10 October 2017 by Cath Hurley

We are now in the final few weeks of the Alphonse Mucha: In Quest of Beauty exhibition, which ends here at the Walker Art Gallery on 29 October. If you haven’t been along to see this fantastic exhibition, then we highly recommend that you do. Tickets are available to buy in advance of your trip, or you can get them from our information desk on your arrival. Head over to the exhibition page on our website for more information, here.

The book that accompanies this travelling exhibition Alphonse Mucha: In Quest of Beauty, features Mucha’s iconic posters and other decorative works from his Paris period and also looks at how the artist expressed his Czech nationalism with his artistic language after his return to his native Czech lands.

It includes over 100 works by Mucha as well as works by his contemporaries who shared his aethetic and spiritual concerns, selected from renowned Aesthetic and Art Nouveau collections in Britain. It features five specialist essays exploring related themes and provides a new perspective on artistic movements at the turn of the 19th century.

You can win one of five of these beautifully illustrated exhibition catalogues, by answering this simple question: What was the name of the famous actress featured in many of Mucha’s theatre posters?

Email your answer, along with your name, postal address and telephone number to by midnight on Thursday 19 October. We’ll email the winner to let them know that they’ve been successful by 5pm on Friday 20 October. The prizes will be mailed out to the winners.

Good luck!
