Étienne Dupérac
architect, painter, and engraver; b. about 1535; d. 1604.
Dupérac passed a part of his life in Italy, where he made numerous engravings dated between 1565 and 1578. These plates are published under the title I Vestigi della Antichità di Roma (1575). According to Félibien Dupérac was employed at the Tuileries in 1599. It is possible that he designed the old Pavillon de Flore, the gallery connecting with the Pavilion Bullant and the western half of the Grande Galerie du Louvre, usually attributed to Jacques Androuet du Cerceau (II).
