Anton Ažbe (30 May 18626 August 1905) was a Slovene painter and teacher.

He was born in a peasant family in the small Carniolan village of Dolenčicemarker near Škofja Lokamarker in Austria-Hungary (today, in Sloveniamarker). At first he studied art in Ljubljanamarker under the supervision of Janez Wolf who introduced him to the style of the Nazarene movement. At the age of twenty he went to Viennamarker, where he attended the Akademie der bildenden Künstemarker. In 1884 he moved to Munichmarker. Initially he attended the Munich Academy of Fine Artsmarker, but in 1885 he left it in order to join the private painting school of Ludwig von Löfftz.

In 1892, he established his own school which soon became known under the name of Azbe-Schule and became one of the most renowned painting schools for young artists in the Bavarianmarker capital. Several famous painters, particularly those who arrived to Munich from Slavic countries, attended Ažbe's school, including Wassily Kandinsky, Alexej von Jawlensky, Rihard Jakopič and Nadežda Petrović.

Ažbe was a renowned painter himself, although he created relatively few paintings. He died in Munich in 1905.
