(b Thionville, 1507, or Lunéville, 1515; d Rome, c. 1565).
French engraver. He was probably related to a family of goldsmiths
from Nancy, but his working life was spent in Italy. He produced
many engravings for publishers in Rome and specialized mostly in
reproducing Italian paintings, views of ancient Rome and to a lesser
extent portraits. He worked for the engraver and publisher Tommaso
Barlacchi in 1541 and 1550, producing Joseph Interpreting Pharaoh’s
Dreams (Robert-Dumesnil, no. 2), the Ascension (RD 14) and Christ
Delivering Souls from Limbo (RD 15) after Raphael. He also worked
for Antonio Salamanca, for whom he made versions of paintings by
Raphael, Michelangelo (e.g. Virgin of Sorrows, 1547; RD 18) and
Baccio Bandinelli (e.g. Struggle between Reason and the Passions,
1545; RD 36).
