Antonín Slavíček

1870-1910 Czech Republic/Impressionism

 

Brief Biography-Antonín Slavíček was a Czech landscape artist born in Prague in 1870. He was a disciple of Julius Mařák at the Prague Academy of Fine Arts. He became associated with the Mánes Association of Fine Artists, where he exhibited his works. The Barbizon School of painters influenced him when he visited Paris in 1907. Soon after, he suffered a stroke and suddenly being incapable of painting, Slavícek sadly shot himself. He was only thirty-nine. Some of his landscapes were later donated to the Modern Art Gallery of Roudnice by his benefactor August Švagrovský.
