Lot Essay

Wencelas Broczik studied at the Fine Arts Academy in Prague, and also at the famed Munich Academy. In 1876, he moved to Paris, where he became a student of the academic painter Leon Bonnat. The following year, he began to exhibit at the Salon, where his paintings were received with great enthusiasm. By 1884, he was made a member of the Legion d'Honneur, and was made an officer of the Legion in 1890.
