Daily Deviation

Given 2013-05-22
Mucha alike. by *jostrartat The suggester said: "Mucha's artwork is recreated to make a stunning stained glass piece. The beautiful use of black, creating depth, and the precise details of the lines make it impossible to look away." ( Suggested by BluestOfBirds and Featured by cakecrumbs )

I don't think this is fair, this is not exactly your work. It is beautiful, but you used a reference heavily and probably without the permission of the original artist.

I do not know who the artist is, but I happen to own a pillcase with this design. Here it is on Etsy. [link]

If you do have the permission of the artist you should at least credit them.... If you don't, I don't think you should post it to this site.

Sorry if I am wrong!

Alphonse Mucha was the original artist. He was born in 1860, an active artist during the turn of the century and died after being questioned by Gestapo in 1939.
This being the case it would be impossible to ask them and despite the '50 year copyright law' in place (one that says no person is allowed to replicate a particular piece, although it is more for songs and still needs reference), this is an extremely famous piece from the Art Nouveau movement, hence the reason it's on items and accessories now. A lot of his work was made for advertising, although not in this form.

So sorry. I didn't get that reference!

Thank you for letting me know, I am aware of that law, just hadn't seen that piece before with the knowledge that the artist was deceased. My mistake! :-)

The artist sort of did mention the artis in the description by stating "Mucha alike" as in it's a lookalike of a Alphonse Mucha's piece and from the looks of it it's an altered version of the Zodiac piece. As for permission, well the artist is deceased, but I'm sure he wouldn't mind too much since quite a bit of his work is for commercial use.

I figured I might be wrong but I had good intentions! I'm sending an apology note to the artist, I never meant to falsely accuse. :-(

I never have called anyone out on that but I just felt compelled because I was so surprised seeing a design that I see every day in my purse, on dA, haha.

Hope he and everyone else understands and forgives my momentary ignorance :-)

Thanks FireFaerieTalia and don't worry about apology..you don't need to. (I understand your critique and you didn't read my explanation about this work it seems.):)

See it also this way: This work is also a learning project about design and glass skills and I liked the works from Mucha. So it's a bit like using Mozart or Bach played on an electric guitar. It's the same..but also not the same all together, more personalised. Adding and removing things from the original to understand their work better..and also my input, how I deal whit great art. I've always explained that the original was..and still is from Mucha.

By the way..I didn't won the lottery or the Nobel price with it, you know..:p
Even don't get in history books with it. I don't even want to. Art should be free for every one to enjoy..like all my projects are: Free to use..copy..or what so ever, I don't care. (Knowing I always can make new ones..and better..and better.)

Thanks again for your reply above..so I could explain a little more.

Take care on yourself and have fun with your creativity. That's the most important. You have already a nice gallery to visit on DA. ;)

I did read the description of the picture, but didn't understand the reference. I had seen Mucha's work floating around everywhere, but could never trace it back to his name. It was just constantly on personal sites and I just gave up eventually.

Yes! I definitely agree! If I had known, I have no problem at all. I don't think anyone would. Your interpretation of his piece is so impressive.

Well, even if you didn't win anything, doesn't make it any less beautiful, and it's great practice. Your art is truly amazing, the detail and colours are astounding. I personally have no idea how to make stained glass so I can truly appreciate your talent at this.

That statement on art is also very true. Art is the epitome of freedom. Very noble words of yours.

So sorry, again, for the trouble I caused for you and embarrassment I brought myself :-) I'm glad I finally got Alphonse Mucha's name. Now I know whose art I've been finding constantly!

Thank you, you as well ;-)

I'm happy to be able to favour a really good comtemporary stained glass piece. It isn't as if there are that many. This is very Art Nouveau.

Thanks for the compliment. It's beginning the be a lost ancient art..for the future I'm afraid. Losing the know how, the materials..(pollution), the patiences today.

Thanks all. Surprised by this highlight on this work of a light personal view of an Mucha's earlier and great work in history. Taking his work in an other dimension of transparent picture feeding only with natural light. I'm not to be in the spot..Mucha is, for his work in his time: making art all around: From architecture till a spoon..or a doorknob.
I'm no one..just playing and fooling around with what I do: Being creative with all what surrounds me. Good and bad..but most of all..fun to create.

Thanks again.
