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.

Thank you so much for making me Champenois so quickly! If you should ever get the desire to do more, here is a site that has high resolution pics of his work. On the site I have two of his paintings featured, Monaco Monte Carlo and JOB.

No problem And yes, I'm planning to make a second set, thank you for the link. Allposters also has lots of lovely prints by Mucha, they're not terribly big, but I don't need high resolution pictures as the ingame paintings are quite low-res.

Sorry I can only upload one type. But you download Winrar very easily, and just unzip them.

I downloaded them, extracted them and when I tried to install them, the Installhelper told me the downloads were corrupt. So I downloaded them again but still it didn't work.

Thanks for doing these! I love these Mucha prints! I was just surfing around to see what was already out there before I made some for myself. Now I don't have to! :0)

Unless I'm massively confused, these have the same file name as the travel posters you made. wah. wah. wah.

And how is it possible that nobody caught this before??? I only have five things in my downloads folder from MTS, so perhaps that's why the file name issue stands out.
