Prague Receives Donation of Czech Art

Alfons Mucha
George R Lawrence Co

A donation by Vera Neumann to Prague's Museum of Decorative Arts brought numerous works of Czech artist Alfons Mucha, specifically a collection of works related to his world famous Le Pater book illustrations. It has been praised as a golden opportunity to feature the artist's development and as a window into the innermost regions of Mucha's heart.

Prague's Museum of Decorative Arts (UMPRUM) has acquired a unique collection of drawings and prints linked to Czech art nouveau painter Alfons Mucha's famous Le Pater book illustrations reflecting the Christian prayer, which it presented to the media Thursday.

The collection has been donated to UMPRUM by Vera Neumann, a Czech-born collector and art sponsor living in Switzerland.

Le Pater, a masterpiece of book culture, for the first time appeared in 1899 in Paris where Mucha (1860-1939) spent many years of his life.
