Jan Royt was head of the Institute of Christian Art History of Charles University and is the author of The Master of the Trebon Altarpiece and Medieval Painting in Bohemia, both also available from Karolinum Press.Review:
“The contributions of Jan Royt’s publication are manifold. First of all, it has compassed the most recent knowledge in the field; second, it can be used as a textbook; and third, it fills a certain empty place in contemporary literature. Last, but not least, its engaging style demonstrates the scholar’s sense of significant manifestations and clarity, as can be evidenced by the well-chosen pictorial supplement.”(Jirí Kropácek, Charles University Prague)
