Marion Hagenmann-Bischoff

[Franciscus]

(b Brussels, c. ?1570–80).

Flemish goldsmith, draughtsman, sculptor, copper engraver and embosser, active in Germany . As a skilled goldsmith from Brussels, he is documented at Augsburg between 1598 and 1604, and from 1603 as a tax-paying citizen; before this he was probably living in Friedberg nearby. After he is recorded as paying taxes three years in advance, traces of Aspruck fade away in 1604. Since he was not accepted as a master craftsman by the Augsburg goldsmiths’ trade, he worked with them as a ‘free artist’. His skills included draughtsmanship, modelling and casting as well as copper engraving, which he also taught to goldsmith apprentices and journeymen. Aspruck’s drawings from 1597 to 1601 show an individual style influenced by Hendrick Goltzius and Bartholomäus Spranger, for example Venus and Amor (1598; Hamburg, Ksthalle). He also sketched for other engravers, as is known, first of all, from the surviving publishing production of the Antwerp engraver Dominicus Custos in Augsburg. In ...

Robert H. Westin and Alessandra Anselmi

Italian family of artists. They originated in Carrara, the well-known source of the best Italian marble. Jacopo Baratta, a mason at Monte Marcello, near Sarzana, was the father of (1) Francesco Baratta, (2) Giovanni Maria Baratta, Isidoro Baratta and Andrea Baratta (fl 1650s). Francesco was a sculptor and follower of Gianlorenzo Bernini, and Giovanni Maria a mason and architect who worked with Alessandro Algardi. The less gifted Andrea collaborated with his brothers in the sculptural decoration of S Nicola da Tolentino, Rome, where he carved two reliefs of Charity and Religion.

Pietro was active in Venice; his most famous work is the elaborate Brandolin monument (1708) in the church of Cison di Valmarino. He travelled to Rome in ...
