Ludvik  Vacátko (born  19 August 1873 Simmering , Austria - died November 26 1956 Kunvald ) was a Czech painter and professor of drawing.

After leaving the army he fully devoted himself to art and was considered an outstanding expert in the anatomy of animals. Most of  his paintings depict nudes, horses, animals and battle scenes. Vacátka  chose Ludek Marold as his assistant to create a panoramic image of Battle of Lipan .  His artistic expression was influenced by the painters George Židlického and Franz Liebl . In 1928 he published the book "Painting Animals".

In 1943 he moved to Kunvald , where he lived until his death in 1956.
