John Hus - On Trial - Preview Image

Václav Brozík (1851-1901) was a Czech painter who created paintings of important historical events (among other subjects).

In 1883, he imagined what it must have been like for fellow Czech, Jan Hus, to stand trial before the Council of Constance (in 1415) which condemned him.

This image depicts that painting, entitled "Master Jan Hus at the Council of Constance."  Click on it for a much-better view.
