Alphonse Mucha’s Documents Décoratifs – Plates 13-24

In our ongoing series on Alphonse Mucha’s Documents Décoratifs, we’re taking a look at the 72 plates that comprise Mucha’s seminal style book. Our look at Plates 1 to 12 can be viewed here. As discussed previously, the Documents Décoratifs is the single strongest summation of the principles of the Art Nouveau movement. What follows below are images of plates 13 to 24.

These plates exemplify fantastic examples of some of the subjects the movement is remembered for: two-dimensional advertisement pieces, women, figure work, and floral work.

Paperblanks has produced 8 journal designs from Mucha’s work, 4 of which originated from Documents Décoratifs plates. To learn more about those journals look at our article about the collection here.
