The Prussian Homage – was an old oil canvas painting that was painted by Jan Matejko between 1879 and 1882 in Kraków. The main focus of the painting was a important political event in which the Duke of Prussia, Albrecht Hohenzollern paid tribute and swore it’s allegiance to the Polish King Sigmunt I.

As you can see the scene look fantastic and Krakow tourist board via Krakow Experience with skilled photographer E. Marchewka decided to make the whole scene as realistic and important as it once was in history. This painting was actually rebellious for it’s time, as it was pro-Polish and anti-Prussian in character.
