Jacopo de’ Barbari, sometimes known or referred to as de’Barbari, de Barberi, de Barbari, Barbaro, Barberino, Barbarigo or Barberigo (c. 1460/70 – before 1516), was an Italian painter, printmaker and miniaturist once a severely individual style. He moved from Venice to Germany in 1500, thus becoming the first Italian Renaissance performer of stature to behave in Northern Europe. His few unshakable paintings (about twelve) include the first known example of trompe-l’œil since antiquity. His twenty-nine engravings and three very large woodcuts were also deeply influential.
