John Mucha, the grandson of the famous Art Nouveau painter Alfons Mucha, has called on Prague City Hall to return the painter’s famous Slav Epic cycle to the family. Before his death in 1939, Alfons Mucha left his cycle of 23 paintings depicting the history of ancient Slavs to the Czech capital on condition that a tailor made building was provided for it. John Mucha argues that the donation is not legally binding since Prague has not met this condition. He is also against the plans of the city to display the paintings in Japan and China as part of a travelling exhibition in 2017 and 2018.
