Who was Jean Baptiste Mathey?

Jean Baptiste Mathey was a French architect and painter born in Dijon.

Between 1675 and 1694 Mathey enjoyed a remarkable career in which his French planning and devotion to classical rationality were a conscious artistic challenge to established taste. Mathey was commissioned by the Archbishop of Prague, Johann Friedrich, to construct the Chateau Troja. His plans were also probably used for the construction of the Church of Saint Roch in the Prague then-suburb of Žižkov.
