Biography Andreas (Andras) Marko
Andreas Marko was a Austrian landscape and figure painter and founding member of the avant-garde Staggia School. The leaders of this movement were Florence-based artists 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. They painted the Tuscan countryside from Siena to Florence, from the Serchio Valley to the Apuan Alps.
