Mucha show breaks Slovak record

THE EXHIBITION entitled Alphons Mucha in the US, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia has broken the attendance record for a Slovak art exhibition.

The show, which was at Bratislava's Pálffy's Palace from November 14, 2002, until January 19, attracted more then 22,800 visitors, causing the organisers to decide to prolong the exhibition by one week. The final number of visitors reached 25,000.

The previous exhibition of this artist's work, Alphons Mucha - Paris 1900, which was held at the same gallery at the end of 2001 and beginning of 2002, attracted around 20,500 visitors. Mucha was a leading figure in the art nouveau movement.
