    Materials and technological characteristics of large-scale canvas painting The Assumption from White Mountain (around 1450), National Gallery in Prague, have been described with the aim to determine the origin of the artwork. Application of traditional medieaval pigments, execution only the imprimitura instead of conventional ground layer and the shape and distribution of cracks comfi rmed fi nally that the painting is original, not transferred, not a copy, and was probably used as a portable painting within Christian liturgy. The simplifi ed technology of making was responding (as in other similar cases) to initially intended temporary usage of these paintings as fasting canvases, flags in liturgical processions, imitation of tapestries etc., and lead to generally worst state of their preservation with respect to more frequent wooden panels.
