Alphonse Mucha: Google's Doodle of the Day

Alphonse Maria Mucha (24 July 1860 – 14 July 1939), an Czech Art Nouveau painter and decorative artist was known for his distinct style and his pictures of women. His work has widely influenced modern art in a wide range of fields.

His designings were later influential to Hapshash and the Coloured Coat, designers who, in the 1960s, created posters for rockbands like Pink Floyd (below).

His work also influenced artist Paul Harvey whose subjects have included Madonna and Charles Saatchi amongst others.

Even Nipponese Manga , fantasy artist Quinton Hoover, and comic book artists were influenced by his Art Nouveau style.

In addition to being an artist, he also credited with re-establishing Czech Masonry.
