In the second half of the 14th century, Prague became a major European centre for politics, commerce and art. Owing to the generous sponsorship of the last of the Luxemburgs, the traditional seat of the Bohemian kings was transformed, nearly overnight, into a vivid city, a meeting place of different cultures and religions. Charles IV turned Prague into the proud residence of the continent's most powerful ruler - the Holy Roman Emperor, a city with spiritual wealth to match even that of the Eternal City of Rome.

Prague's imperial court was a meeting place for the finest painters, sculptors, goldsmiths and architects celebrating their rulers in art and enhancing the glory of the Holy Roman Empire and Kingdom of Bohemia. The art of Imperial Prague became a phenomenon that reverberated throughout many of Europe's royal and ecclesiastical courts, culminating under the reign of Charles' sons, Wenceslas IV and Sigismund, when a unique European artistic style - the International Gothic - was born.
