Photographer's Note

Among the most beautiful features of the Saint Vitus Cathedral in Prague are the stained-glass windows. A number of successful Czech artists were involved in the creation of those windows. The most spectacular window of them all is this one by Alfons Mucha. He is definitively the most famous Czech Art Nouveau artist. In particular he is famous for his posters for the theatre of Sarah Bernhardt in Paris. However, Mucha also made book illustrations, ornamental panels, advertisements, jewellery and architectural designs and many other thinks. A biography and some pictures of his work including this window could be found in the English version of Wikipedia
