Jost Amman
16th century
(Zurich, Switzerland, 1539 - 1591, Nuremberg, Germany)

Amman was a prolific engraver and designer of woodcuts for book illustration. His etchings are distinctive, especially his portraits. These follow engraved types, but use the more tractable technique, certainly as an economy, but also to suggest a greater immediacy of appearance and characterization.
