It's about time I put up a new Artist-of-Indeterminate-Time-Period.
In the house I grew up in my bathroom had this wallpaper that were miniature reproductions of French advertisements. Besides unsuccessfully trying to read and pronounce the words I also enjoyed some of the artwork, one artist in particular though I didn't know his name at the time.
Alphonse Mucha IS Art Nouveau to me, he defines that style, a style I absolutely love. (Note to self: Make own Art Nouveau piece) The thick outlines, the intricate detail work in the often symmetrical borders, the painterly figures.
When Red and I went to see Enchanted in the theater I was almost giddy at the opening animated bits. Disney did a wonderful job bringing that style into the animation, especially in Jiselle's window and in some framing of the evil queen.
So there you are then, Mucha, Artist-Of-The-Indeterminate-Time-Period.
