Vy Brod

The Master of Vy Brod (also known as the Master of Hohenfurth, from the German name for the town of Vy Brod) was an anonymous Bohemian painter active around 1350. It seems likely that he was from Prague originally; an altarpiece for the Cistercian convent of Vy Brod, from which his name is derived, may still be seen in Prague. Datable to around 1350, the painting, whose panels are now disbanded, depicts the Infancy of Christ along with scenes from the Passion. It is seen in the Convent of St. Agnes branch of the National Gallery in Prague. The scenes depicting the Annunciation, the Nativity, the Adoration of the Magi and the Resurrection are ascribed to the Master's hand, while other portions are believed to be the product of his studio.
