Gesamtkunstwerk is an all-encompassing word to describe a creative process wherein different forms of art are combined into a single, cohesive whole. See how Mucha fits that definition in this Art Term Tuesday.
Staff at #fwmoa are playing favorites! We're asking them to pick their favorite work currently on display in the museum. Looking for Permanent Collection Intern Audra Widmann? You'll be sure to find her staring at her current favorite, Mucha's "Zodiaque".
Can art really ever be new? Art Nouveau (New Art) tried! Explore the short-lived movement dominated by artists whose work we love today; then, come visit #fwmoa to see it on display! See Art Nouveau master Alphonse Mucha's posters until September 26.
Today’s treasure comes from one of FWMoA’s hottest artists, Chuck Sperry. Sperry has been on the rock poster scene for over 20 years and his unique style has resulted in legions of fans who flock to his gallery openings for the chance to purchase one of his sumptuous prints. The women he features are synonymous with fantasized beauty – full lips, mysterious expressions, lithe figures, and perfectly tousled red ringlets. Justice, the print in FWMoA’s collection, embodies Sperry’s oeuvre.
