Marcantonio Raimondi, (1480 -
Italian engraver. His technique of engraving became dominant in Italy and elsewhere. His first dated engraving comes from 1505. He was strongly affected by Dürer who was in Bologna in 1506, as was Michelangelo. About this time he began to make copies of Dürer's woodcut series. Dürer made a complaint to the Venetian Government, which won him some legal protection for his monogram, but not his compositions. Marcantonio and his pupils made also engravings based upon Raphael's work.
