Jacques Callot was an important artist who contributed significantly to the development of the old master print. He created more than 1400 etchings that chronicle various aspects of early 17th century life and culture - depictions of clowns, soldiers, gypsies, drunkards, beggars, dancers, as well as figures instrumental to court life.
