This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Alphonse Mucha Painting Set (updated with an extra painting on 20/09)

This painting set contains 2 panels and 4 separate paintings by my favorite artist Alphonse Mucha and two bonus paintings by me. They do not replace any paintings in-game, and the frames are fully recolorable. I hope you will enjoy using them


Important info
  • The panel paintings are made with the Elegant Swirls Deluxe painting from the Ultra Lounge Store Set (the object is not needed however for the panels to work).
  • The pillows in the first screenshot can be downloaded from Summer Afternoon (Lin Livingroom set).
  • The clutter in the first screenshot is created by Lemoncandy.
  • You can find more of my art on my blog.
  • You may include these paintings in uploaded lots (on MTS, with proper credit given) but you may not upload them elsewhere.


From left to right: Flowers Series and Precious Stones


From left to right: Lily, Four Seasons (with Simlish text) and Emerald


Bonus: Sea Shells

Update: I've added this painting (F. Champenois), which was requested by SilentApprentice.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Beautiful plus size women, and elegance - perfect! I love the olden days when being a big woman was a sign of beauty and elevated status!

I absolutely love these and I'm building just the house that can use them right now. If you love Mucha go to the St. Andrews face transformer and put a pic of yourself in and it turns it to a Mucha painting. I did it a couple of years ago and I love it.

Aw no, I can't use them in my lots as they need store stuff to work, but I can use them in my own houses

Looked at your blog. Lovely art. I especially enjoy the papercraft. Perhaps that can be translated int something simlish? ;D

Gorgeous! Thank you.

The prospect of a long day at the beach makes me panic. There is no harder work I can think of than taking myself off to somewhere pleasant, where I am forced to stay for hours and 'have fun'.

I grew up with these all over my house.
Although I would love to forget my earlier years, this art has been a great influence on my life.
thanks for the uploads, always nice to see Mucha.

That's what I thought at first too, but if you follow Xanathon's tutorial it's really easy (although the latest version of s3pe/s3oc works slightly different than it is shown in the tutorial's pics, but you should be fine). And if you have any problems you can always ask for help in the modding forum or PM me.

Aw, I am unable to unzip the file for these paintings! It just says - "MTS_Martine_1003953_Mucha.zip: Unexpected end of archive"
When I try dragging the file to a different folder, it says - "The archive is either in unknown format or damaged"
That makes me sad, I was really looking forward to putting these in all my sim houses!

Hm, strange, I've also downloaded them myself to make sure they were archived correctly. I'll try to archive them as rars, I'll send you a link via PM where you can download them.
