Isaac Briot

Georges d'Amboise, heliography from 1826 by Nicéphore Niépce from the engraving by Briot from 1633.

Isaac Briot (1585 1670) a French engraver and draughtsman, was born in 1585, and died in Paris in 1670. His plates are rather neatly executed, in the style of Wierix, and mostly from his own compositions, but the drawing is defective.
