St. Dominic Church

St. Dominic’s Miracle

Oil on canvas 262 x 171 cm. Prague 1911.

In the background there is the church interior and in the middle St. Dominic, gazing ecstatically towards Heaven and stretching his hands above a kneeling mother with a dead child in her arms. In the right foreground, there is a female figure in a pose of adoration at the miracle of bringing the child back to life. This post-impressionist painting in light colours was executed in 1911 while the artist was working as a professor at the Academy of Art in Prague.
