John Mucha speaks to Radio Prague about his battle to secure a home for Mucha's 20 canvas cycle, the Slav Epic

Alphonse Mucha bequested his 20 canvas opus on the history and mythology of the Slav peoples, the Slav Epic, to Prague on the condition that it be put on permanent display to the nation in a purpose-built gallery. For 20 years, John Mucha, President of the Mucha Foundation and grandson of Alphonse, has been fighting to see the conditions of his grandfather's gift fulfilled.

The City of Prague is now planning to send the Slav Epic to Japan, China, Korea and America, putting these fragile works at great risk. In this interview, John tells Radio Prague how he now has no choice but to take legal action against Prague City Council.
