Antonin Machek (1775 Podlazice by Chrast, Czech Republic - 1844 Prague) started out as a pupil of Zitta (a painter working in service of the Bishop of Koeniggraetz); in 1792 became a pupil of Blum in Prague, proceeding to study under Reiner, and from 1794 - under Tuvora and Kohl at the Prague Academy.
From 1798 Machek lived in Vienna, where in 1799 he entered the Academy of Fine Arts.
Already in the next year, Machek received the commission to decorate the wall paintings in the Royal Residence Laxenburg by Vienna, as well as in the Bishop's Residence. In 1801 he returned to Czechia. From 1802 until 1813 the artist lived in the Austrian towns Linz (center of the Upper Austian Province) and Steyr, working mainly as portraitist (painted in oils and miniature). Among his sitters were numerous members of the aristocracy, clergymen and scientists. Later on Machek has founded a Lithographic Institute in Prague. He became one of the most recognized Czech artists.
