The Municipal House, The Mayor’s Lounge

In 1912 the construction of the Municipal House, a representative building with a concert hall, gallery, restaurants and several lounges, was completed. Originally, Alfons Mucha was to have decorated the whole building, but later he was entrusted with only decorating the most prestigious Lord Mayor’s lounge. Mucha not only designed the pictorial decoration of the ceiling, walls and space above the doors, but also the textiles, ornaments and all the details.

The many remarkable details with motifs of ancient Slavonic jewels and ceramics are Jarmila Mucha Plocková’s source of inspiration when creating certain objects. Their pure, simple forms prove just how contemporary Mucha’s artistic legacy is. The series Kazi bears the name of one of the three daughters of the mythical Czech prince Krok; Jarmila Mucha Plocková’s part as an author is decisive here. It is a logical outcome of her work, which uses the experience gained while creating works after Alfons Mucha. This will most probably be the next path taken by the gifted granddaughter of the world- renowned artist, Alfons Mucha.

Jarmila Mucha Plocková’s independent work, which encompasses the sphere of jewels, textiles, small items of plastic art and objects of applied art, indicates this.
