Antonija Krasnik (Lovinac, 1874 – Zagreb, 1956), painter and sculptress, a versatile artist with an international reputation, trained in Vienna. She attended the Kunstgewerbeschule of Koloman Moser, where she attracted attention for the high quality of her works, already much appreciated and reproduced in printed references to the work of the school. In a notice of the exhibition of Moser’s pupils held in Pisko’s Art Rooms in November 1903 The Studio highlighted her design of a whole interior in tones of black and white. Along with furniture, the exhibits were also done from her drawings, following the application of the geometrical forms of the Viennese Secession. According to a review in Art et Decoration of 1905, in Paris Krasnik exhibited, among other things, glass vases in the shape of animals, and stylised figures of monkeys. The artist made drawings for candlesticks, vases, crockery, cigarette cases, jewellery and fashion accessories, furniture, rugs and embroidery, and the execution was undertaken by some of the best known workshops and factories. Glass objects after her designs were produced by the well-known Viennese glassworks Bakalowitz und Söhne.
