Alphonse Mucha

I generally like clean, contemporary graphics, but I make an exception for certain Art Nouveau works. Even though many of these items are highly decorated, two aspects of the style appeal to my tastes: often the biomorphic shapes and lines are asymmetric, and when the decoration is integrated into the whole, it's not longer superficial but becomes an element of the overall form and design.

Alphonse Mucha
exemplifies these characteristics.
