After the Battle of Grunwald by Alfons Mucha Alfons Maria Mucha (Czech: ['alfons 'muxa] (About this soundlisten); 24 July 1860 – 14 July 1939), known internationally as Alphonse Mucha, was a Czech painter, illustrator and graphic artist, living in Paris during the Art Nouveau period, best known for his distinctly stylized and decorative theatrical posters, particularly those of Sarah Bernhardt. He produced illustrations, advertisements, decorative panels, and designs, which became among the best-known images of the period. In the second part of his career, at the age of 43, he returned to his homeland of Bohemia-Moravia region in Austria and devoted himself to painting a series of twenty monumental canvases known as The Slav Epic, depicting the history of all the Slavic peoples of the world,[3] which he painted between 1912 and 1926. In 1928, on the 10th anniversary of the independence of Czechoslovakia, he presented the series to the Czech nation. He considered it his most important work. It is now on display in Prague. #art #painting #classic #war #life

Artist Alfio Presotto Alfio Presotto was born in 1940 in Torre di Mosto in the Venetian province. The painter's childhood and adolescence are marked by traumatic experiences that enrich him spiritually and allow him to strengthen a character in many ways weakened by illness. As it is often remembered, up to the end of adolescence his training can be considered self-taught: referring to great painters such as Michelangelo and Raphael, the artist finds the gratification of the perfect shape and anatomy. The characteristic forms, the silent search for evocation of reality thus become the transfiguration of a difficult period in his life.
