François Perrier

François Perrier (1590–1650) was a French painter, draftsman, and printmaker. Perrier was instrumental in introducing into France the grand style of the decorative painters of the Roman Baroque. He is also remembered for his two collections of prints after antique sculptures, the Segmenta nobilium signorum et statuarum quae temporis dentem invidium evasere, and Icones et segmenta...quae Romae adhuc extant. These prints provided visual repertories of classical models for generations of European artists and connoisseurs. Read more from Wikipedia →
