Agostino Musi (aka Agostino Veneziano)

Italian engraver and draftsman

Brief biography, in most instances from the Union List of Artist Names® Online:
Musi was a pupil of Giulio Campagnola; he formed his style on a study of Albrecht Dürer and was also a follower of Marc Antoine Raimondi. He is noted for having published engravings of grostesque ornament similar to that by Raphael and Giovanni da Udine in the Vatican Logge. He probably died in Rome.
