Hans ZATZKA (Austrian, 1859-1945) ✿

Hans Zatzka was an Austrian painter known for his paintings of religious, mythological, and allegorical subjects. A portrait, landscape, and still life artist, Zatzka’s work was often used to decorate church interiors.
Born in Vienna, Austria, the artist studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna for five years, perfecting his rich Classicist style under Carl von Blaas, Christian Ludwig Griepenkerl, and Carl Wurzinger.
He is credited for popularizing a smaller canvas size for placement in cramped spaces, which became sought-after throughout European homes early in the 20th century.
