Czech Art Nouveau master, Alfonse Mucha started out his career forced to make ads for champagne and cigarette companies but later moved on to be commissioned to make the stained glass windows of St. Vitus in Prague and eventually created Slovanská epopej (the Slav Epic), a huge (20 panels each about 24 feet by 18 feet) cycle telling the history of his people. I don’t care to give more detail than this. This isn’t wikipedia. I just want to show some of the most beautiful transformations of paint into women I’ve ever seen.
