Alfons Mucha

I picked Alfons (Alphonse) up in Prague a few summers back: his work was all over note- and post-cards in a souvenir shop off the Old Square. I haven't been to his museum yet (http://mucha.tyden.cz/index.phtml?S=home&Lang=EN), but that will give me something to hope and plan for on my next visit.

Alfons Maria Mucha[1][2] (Czech pronunciation: [ˈalfons ˈmuxa]; 24 July 1860 – 14 July 1939), known in English as Alphonse Mucha, was a Czech Art Nouveau painter and decorative artist,[3] known best for his distinct style. He produced many paintings, illustrations, advertisements, postcards, and designs.
