Record Type: Person
Frey, Jakob (Swiss draftsmann and printmaker, 1681-1752)

Note: Son of the sculptor in wood, Hans Heinrich Frey. Jakob Frey was greatly influenced by his teacher, Carlo Maratti, who drew his attention to the picturesque qualities of etching. He combined engraving and etching in most of his prints and is particularly known for his very precise and accurate reproductive engravings after 17th- and 18th-century Old Masters (notable examples are of the "Aurora" (1722) after Guido Reni and the "Flight into Egypt" (1735) after Maratti). The Zentralbibliothek in Lucerne houses the most complete collection of his graphic works.Frey was commissioned to design the ceiling fresco for the nave of St. Jost Church at Blatten, Lucerne. Comment on works: Engraver; Draftsman; Painter
