This is a reproduction of a print of Prague Castle — seat of the Czech kings for 1,000 years, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and home to the Lobkowicz Palace. The Lobkowicz Palace was built in the second half of the 16th century and came into the family’s possession through the marriage of Polyxena Pernštejn (1566–1642) to Zdenko Popel, 1st Prince Lobkowicz (1568–1628). This beautiful palace bore witness to many important historical events, from the 1618 Defenestration of Prague to Nazi and Communist occupation in the 20t h century. This historical view includes the Vltava River.
The original 19th century etching was based on drawing by Vincenc Morstadt (1802-1875), an acclaimed Bohemian painter and illustrator who was primarily known as a landscape and veduta artist. This charming bird-eye view of Prague was published in print by W.A. Ryba and dedicated to diplomat Rudolph Kinsky (1802–1836).
