One can mention, among others, such paintings as: Stańczyk during a ball at the court of Queen Bona, in the face of the loss of Smolensk (1862), Union of Lublin (1869), The Hanging of the Sigismund bell (1874), or Prussian Homage (1880–1882).

The presented pencil drawing by Jan Matejko is a sketch for the painting entitled Długosz and St. Kazimierz which was eventually left unpainted. On his paintings, Matejko often presented historical topics from the reign of the Jagiellonians. One can mention, among others, such paintings as: Stańczyk during a ball at the court of Queen Bona, in the face of the loss of Smolensk (1862), Union of Lublin (1869), The Hanging of the Sigismund bell (1874), or Prussian Homage (1880–1882).
The sketch shows the moment when Jan Długosz, a teacher and tutor of the young prince, is a witness to his ardent prayer. Soon after the untimely death of Kazimierz, in connection with the memory of his piety and widespread worship of his person, efforts to bring about his canonization began. However due to various historical turmoil, the young prince was only approved to be venerated at the altars in 1602.
The theme of the prayer of St. Kazimierz, witnessed by Długosz, is presented by another well-known painting – by Florian Cynk (ca. 1869), Matejko’s contemporary and professor of drawing at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków. This work is in the National Museum in Warsaw (Inventory No.: 34463).
