Nicolas Beatrizet

active between c. 1540–1566

After moving to Rome in about 1540, Nicolas Beatrizet initially worked as an engraver for local publishers such as Antonio Salamanca and Tommaso Barlacchi. Between 1547 and 1560 the artist was employed in the influential printing house of Antonio Lafreri before becoming an independent publisher himself around 1558. Under the influence of Enea Vico and Giorgio Ghisi, Beatrizet gradually developed a robust and technically highly developed engraving style.
