  • Jacques Callot - Plundering and Burning a Village, 1633 (Detail)

Jacques Callot, born around 1592, was a French baroque printmaker and draftsman from the Duchy of Lorraine. He was one of the artists who helped develop old master print. He made more than 1,400 etchings that chronicled the life of his period, featuring soldiers, clowns, drunkards, Gypsies, beggars, as well as court life. He also etched many religious and military images, and many prints featured extensive landscapes in their background.
