Václav Brožík

1851-1901 Czech Republic

 

Brief Biography-Václav Brožík was from Tremosyna, Bohemia. He began his studies at the Art Academy Prague and from there he went to the Munich Art School. In 1876 he moved to Paris to study under Leon Bonnat and the guidance of fellow country man Jaroslav Čermák. He was a historical painter but indulged in portraiture without great commercial success.
In Prague he was made a professor at the Art Academy and the Emperor Franz Joseph I raised him to the status of nobility in 1878 due to his historical art. He was a member of the Académie des Beaux-Arts and received the Légion d'Honneur in 1884. He died at the early age of forty nine and was buried in Paris.
