(Mantua 1503 - 1575)
Founder of a famous family of engravers, he trained at the school of Giulio Romano, but was influenced by Marcantonio Raimondi in the course of his work: the whole activity took place between these two poles. Most of his engravings derive from works by Giulio Romano.
Between 1536 and 1540 Scultori engraved 20 plates according to Bartsch, or 21 according to Albricci, many of which carry the IBM monogram. Scultori dedicated himself to the art of engraving when he was already a skilled draftsman and sculptor, and his prints reflect the sculptural technique in the deep lines that enhance the tonal contrasts. He was a teacher for his sons Adamo and Diana - but neither of them had the originality and talent of his father, and probably of Giorgo Ghisi, whose surname was wrongly attributed to Scultori already by Vasari.
The first works of Ghisi show the influence of the master, of which he translates two drawings on the Trojan war.
