About

VOJTECH (Adalbert) HYNAIS CZECH (Bohemian) b. Vienna, 1854 d. 1925 Bohemian Painter specializing in elegant genre, portraits, and historical scenes – some religious subjects. Hynais was born in 1854 in Vienna, the capital of the sprawling, polyglot Austro-Hungarian Empire. He began his formal artistic training at the Akademie der bildenden Künste in Vienna, where he studied under the German academic painter Anselm Feuerbach; and later, continued his studies at the Ecole des Beaux-arts in Paris with Paul-Jacques-Aimé Baudry and Jean-Léon Gérôme. Hynias began exhibiting in Vienna in 1873 with a drawing titled Heracles in his Crib; and exhibited a painting in 1877 titled Herakles. The artist continued to exhibit in Vienna throughout his career. Vojtech Hynais debuted at the official salon in Paris in 1878 with a religious picture—Mary the Virgin—and a portrait of a man. The artist received the title of chevalier of the Legion d’honneur SELECTED EXHIBITIONS Vienna, 1873 (gold medal) Salon, Société des Artistes Français, Paris, 1878–1889 Societe Nationale des Beaux-arts Internationale Kunstausstellung, Glaspalast, Munich, 1888–98 Exposition Universelle des Beaux-arts, Antwerp, 1894
