Mathey Jean Baptiste also Matthei, Mathieu, Matheus Burgundus

* around 1630 (Dijon, France) †1696 (Paris, France)

French architect and painter worked in Bohemia between 1675 – 1695, he was a representative of classicized style of high Baroque at its beginning. In Bohemia he worked solely as a designer because he was not accepted to the builders guild. He worked for Prague archbishop, church orders (Premonstrantesians, Knights of the Cross or Theatines), nobility (Sternbergs, Šliks, Wallensteins) and for the king (at the Prague castle). Models for his academic, prosaic designs were often older buildings of Romanesque style. To Czech architecture he brought some new types of secular and church buildings and new architectural elements as well.
