Description The parish Church of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Křenová Street in Brno was designed, built, furnished and decorated between 1909 and 1915, under the auspices of the seventh bishop of Brno, Count Dr. Pavel Huyn, and the Society for Temple Construction in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brno, which was chaired by Huyn. The design of the building and most of its equipment were developed by architect Franz Holik, the member of the Construction Committee of the Society, who participated in coordination of the church decoration. Using the correspondence and other documents of the Society, which are stored in the archive of the Brno Diocese, one can (to some extent) reconstruct how the work was assigned to individual artists and how it proceeded, but also learn about the ideas and plans that did not come to fruition in the end. Additional information can be found in the local press published in those days (Tagesbote, Hlas). This modern Marian church with preserved, almost intact Art Nouveau interior has already been studied quite thoroughly, which is why this paper focuses more specifically on reviewing and updating what we know about its wall and hanging paintings created by artists from Vienna and Brno (Hans Kalmsteiner, Friedrich Hans Wacha and Eduard Csánk), as well as by František Kolbábek from Náměšť nad Oslavou and Norbert Pokorný from Tišnov. The primary focus of the paper is to evaluate a set of tempera paintings on paper that have been found – images used by Hans Kalmsteiner for painting the Via Crucis emblems on the walls which disappeared in the meantime and which have been painted (following Kalmsteiner’s sketches) by František Kolbábek.
