Jacques Callot, 1592-1635 was a printmaker of mostly etchings, born & died in Nancy, who worked in Florence, Paris and Nancy. He developed innovations in etchings, and was a recognized master. 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. Famous for his series on the “Miseries of War” and for small prints with much detail.

Israel Henriet, French publisher/printer, 1590 c.-1661. Published many of Callot’s prints. After Callot's death, Henriet purchased many plates, and bequeathed them to his nephew, Israël Silvestre.
