(1592/93, Nancy, Francia–24 mar. 1635, Nancy).

Aguafuertista, grabador y dibujante francés. Aprendió la técnica del grabado en Roma. En 1612 fue contratado en la corte de la familia Médicis en Florencia, para realizar registros pictóricos de desfiles y banquetes. Tenía talento para la caricatura y lo grotesco; su serie de aguafuertes Las miserias de la guerra (1633), que documentaba las atrocidades de la guerra de los Treinta Años, fue utilizada como fuente de inspiración por Francisco de Goya. Su producción fue prodigiosa; se han conservado más de 1.400 aguafuertes y 2.000 dibujos. Fue uno de los mejores grabadores en aguafuerte, y también, uno de los primeros artistas importantes en practicar en forma exclusiva las artes gráficas.
