Mucha was dubbed "The Apostle of the Beautiful and the Ideal" by the English publication The Poster. Mucha posters are among the most elegant products of the Art Nouveau period and now they are among the most elegant desktop themes. The wallpaper is an 800x600 JPG image set to stretch on the desktop. Sounds are all from Renee Fleming's CD "The Beautiful Voice" with the English Chamber Orchestra conducted by Jeffrey Tate. All the icons and cursors are coherently fitting with surrounding theme parts. Additionally, an extra font, system logo screens and web view images are included.

It's very quiet, maybe even too quiet. The sound files are all here and it's understandable that an opera based sound is somewhat quieter than most theme settings but you'll really have to turn your speakers up to here these. Not having the opportunity to see any of this artist's original work, it's hard to say but the wallpaper looks like it could use a little more contrast. Some of the cursors are also a little rough around the edges.

It's fine art for fine art lovers.
