Alphonse Mucha: Master of Art Nouveau

The gorgeous Art Nouveau designs of Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939) are featured in this acclaimed exhibition drawn from one of the finest private collections of the artist’s work in the United States.  Alphonse Mucha: Master of Art Nouveau features 75 works by the celebrated Czech master, whose expressive and seductive imagery helped shape the aesthetics of French Art Nouveau at the turn of the 20th century. Taking inspiration from the unruly aspects of the natural world, Art Nouveau influenced art and architecture, especially in graphic work and illustration, with its sinuous lines and whiplash curves. Through rare original lithographs, proofs and drawings, as well as books, illustrations, portfolios and ephemera, the exhibition examines the broad range of Mucha’s work, which emphasizes creating a new art fit for the new century.

Vietnam: The Real War Photographs from The Associated Press

Sunday, June 16, 2019

Vietnam: The Real War Photographs from The Associated Press

Parental discretion is advised.

The Vietnam War was a long, costly and divisive conflict that pitted the communist government of North Vietnam against South Vietnam and its principal ally, the United States. The conflict was intensified by the ongoing Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. More than 3 million people (including over 58,000 Americans) were killed in the Vietnam War, and more than half of the dead were Vietnamese civilians. Opposition to the war in the United States bitterly divided Americans, even after President Richard Nixon ordered the withdrawal of U.S. forces in 1973. Communist forces ended the war by seizing control of South Vietnam in 1975, and the country was unified as the Socialist Republic of Vietnam the following year.

To cover the Vietnam War, The Associated Press gathered an extraordinary group of superb photojournalists in its Saigon bureau, creating one of the greatest photographic legacies of the 20th century. This collection tells the story of a divisive war that left a deep and lasting impression on American life.
