Anton Romako (October 20, 1832 - March 8, 1889) was an Austrian painter. He studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna (1847-9). Later, he studied in Munich (1849) under Wilhelm Kaulbach, and subsequently in Venice, Rome and London. In the early 1850s he studied privately in Vienna under Carl Rahl, whose style Romako adopted. In 1854 he began travels to Italy and Spain and in 1857 settled in Rome. Romako painted a large number of landscape scenes, influenced by the Barbizon school, but is known mostly for his portraits and historical scenes. His early works display the influence of Biedermeier realism, while the late works are painted in a nervous expressionist style which disturbed his contemporaries.
