About artist -
András or Andrea Markó (1824–1895) was an Austrian - Italian painter, mainly of landscapes and figures. He was active in Florence, Italy.
Andrea Marco was born in Vienna, was initially apprenticed with his father, painter - Karoly Marco the Elder. Andrea is said to have also studied with Carl Rahl at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts.
Andrea was a prolific artist, painting landscapes in oil of diverse parts of Europe, though mostly in Italy. He also was founding member of the avantgarde Staggia School, Florence-based, Italy. The leaders of this movement were Andreas Marko, Lorenzo Gelati (1824-1895), Serafino De Tivoli and Carlo Ademollo (1824-1911). They abandoned the Academy’s formalism to draw inspiration directly from nature, making rural scenes the subject of their paintings. They were influenced by the Barbizon School in France.
