An attractive original painting from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts Design School trained artist and heraldist Franz Šedivý Yun. His first exhibition was in 1919 and he worked as a theatre stage designer and restorer for various Copenhagen museums such as the National Museum, the Folklore Museum and Svanholm Castle. At the same time he cultivated his talent as a heraldist becoming a coat-of-arms painter for the Royal Order of Denmark between 1945 and 1967.
