EMPRESS BARBARA ON A HORSE
A collection dedicated to women worldwide, and foremost to Empress Barbara. The triple queen – of Hungary, Germany and Bohemia – unsettled her contemporaries with her beauty, intelligence and that special magnetism only strong women possess. Her passion for alchemy, astrology and metaphysical experimentation shone light into the darkness of medieval times, as she explored parapsychological phenomena in pursuit of spiritual enlightenment.

Rudolf Španzel’s oil canvasses, which derive from the tradition of classical painting, push the boundaries of realistic depiction. His playful, often biting symbolism tells the deep personal story of the artist and his subject.
