an etching

Marcantonio Raimondi

after the painting by

Raphael

Marcantonio Raimondi, also simply Marcantonio; 1480 – c. 1534,  Italian engraver, known for being the first important printmaker whose body of work consists mainly of prints copying paintings. He is therefore a key figure in the rise of the reproductive print. He also systematized a technique of engraving that became dominant in Italy and elsewhere. Marcantonio left Venice after publishing engravings after Durer's woodcuts so good that Dürer came to Venice to complain. Marcantonio went to Rome and established himself as an engraver, becoming Raphael's favorite.
