* approximately 1632 (Horní Slavkov), †1709 (Prague)
Czech sculptor and wood carver actively worked in the time of Baroque transition from early to high phase. He probably spent his youth in Italy then he found an art workshop in Prague which was functioning till the second half of 1830´s. His art works were mostly influenced by J.J.Bendl. His work is often mixed up with that of his step-son Jan Bedřich Kohl-Severa and it is not always clear who is the author – this fact concerns also three statues at the Charles Bridge.
