    1. By far the finest (and for some reason smelliest) Mucha collection I've come across in years of obsessive absorption in his work, this beast also includes a section of his photography - much of which I'd never seen and all of which is wonderful - and preliminary sketches that are somehow just as stunning as their full-color counterparts.
