In this painting of an uncommon subject-matter for Václav Rabas, the artist introduces us to his native home, the Mozolín mill, which the Rabas family had owned since the middle of the 18th century. The artwork, which comes from the artist’s estate, is listed in the exhibition catalogue (Jiří Kotalík: National Artist Václav Rabas: Collection of Work 1885–1954, Prague, 1956, cat. No. 115) and published in the artist’s monograph (Jiří Kotalík: Václav Rabas. Chronicle of his life and work, Prague, 1961, p. 12).
