The Academy of Fine Arts in Prague was established in 1799 by a decree passed by Emperor Franz I.

In 1925 the school became the first art school in Bohemia to acquire the status of a university. It gradually expanded its fields of study (in 1945, for example, the Art Conservation Department was opened), and in 1990 internal reforms led to multimedia disciplines becoming part of its program.
