Leading Czech painter Michael Rittstein’s (born 1949) Sports Epic is possibly one of the most important works of art to explore the world of sports on both the Czech as well as the international level. This cycle – a visual drama consisting of 27 pieces depicting the yearning for perfection in art, sport and life – was first exhibited at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. This book explores the circumstances under which it was created and offers a close-up look inside the soul of each individual painting.
