The Alphonse Mucha collection celebrates some of the greatest works he completed during his lifetime. Mucha was active during the art nouveau movement between 1890 and 1910, a time period generally viewed as the height of that movement. Most importantly though, his works featuring beautiful women in various poses are considered catalysts for the movement as a whole.
Alphonse Maria Mucha was born in Moravia in the Austrian Empire, now Czech Republic, in July 1860. He would go on to become a famed Czech art nouveau painter and decorative artist who is considered by many to be the father of the art nouveau movement. He was an active artist, creating new designs and paintings up until his death in 1939.
On the obverse of all 5 oz Proof Mucha Collection Dance Silver Rounds is the image of Mucha taken from an actual full-size photograph of the Czech artist. For the round series, a close-up shot of his head was chosen, and is surrounded by engravings of his name, birth year, death year, weight, metal content, and purity of the round.
The reverse side of all 5 oz Proof Mucha Collection Dance Silver Rounds includes the stunning figure of Dance. She is depicted looking back over her shoulder at you, her figure tight as she stands on her tiptoes while her auburn hair flows in the breeze.
Dance was the fourthdesign in a series from Mucha known as The Arts. Other figures included in this four-part series of images include Painting, Poetry, and Music. As with all Mucha Women, Dance exudes beauty in her figure and is considered by many to be one of his most seductive women ever drawn.
