Mucha was established as a leading poster artist between 1895 and 1900. Mucha’s distinctive style was called ‘le style Mucha’, becoming synonymous with the current ‘Art Nouveau’ style. It was Mucha’s belief that through the creation of beautiful works of art the quality of life would be improved. He also believed that it was his duty as an artist to promote art for ordinary people. The Times of the Day (1899) illustrate all the typical qualities of the Mucha poster – the beautiful women with suggestive gestures, the decorative use of flowers and flowing hair, the subtle yet striking colours – all combine to create a compelling harmony of vision whose intention is to inspire and elevate the viewer.
These jigsaw puzzles are more interesting than regular puzzles: the pieces all have a different shape, and you cannot sort them based on their shape. The cutting follows the theme: it is the craftsman, not a machine, who singles out the colours and creates the complexity. As each puzzle is unique, solving them always requires a different strategy.
