Obituary from The Chronicle of Art, Oct. 1884:

Hans Markart (1840-1884) was born in Salzburg. He studied at Munich under Piloty - whose best pupil he was - and afterwards at Rome; and at seven-and-twenty the Paris Exhibition mad him famous. In 1869 he settled at Vienna, and there - a favourite at court, the darling of the Viennese, the proprietor of a magnificent studio, the painter of a number of renouned pictures, a public character in every sense of the word - he remained until his death.
