Born in Vicenza, active in Rome and Bologna c. 1525-1550

Born in Vicenza, Niccolò Vicentino produced chiaroscuro woodcuts of a discernible character. Working in Rome after Raphael’s death he belonged to the circle of Ugo da Carpi, as a printer and a woodcutter. He signed only five chiaroscuro woodcuts, each after a different artist and all undated. However, his hand is one of several discernable in a large group of anonymous chiaroscuros based on designs by Parmigianino, which are presumed to be products of a workshop supervised by Vicentino.
