Jacques Callot (1592 - 28 March 1635) was a French painter, draughtsman and engraver.
Callots work was in the style of the early French baroque and inspired both Georges de la Tour and the young Rembrandt. The beginning of his career was spent at the Court of Cosimo II de ' Medici in Florence. Here, he made most of the theatre work, notably the commedia dell'arte in the lead role.
In 1621, he returned to his birthplace Nancy, this marks a change in his style. His style has a certain directness and intensity. He made etchings with scenes from everyday life and in particular the less rosy side of the society. In “Les Misères et les Mal-heurs de la guerre” he recapitulates his experiences in the Thirty Years' War, often in a moralizing tone of voice. His high-quality etchings have often been compared to those of Albrecht Dürer.
