Raclin Murphy Museum of Art
Nicolas Beatrizet was a French reproductive engraver working in Italy in the sixteenth century. He was among the first generation of artists to record the display of the Laocoön in the Belvedere courtyard of the papal gardens after it was rediscovered in 1506 and acquired by Pope Julius II. In this version of Beatrizet’s print, the sculpture has not yet been completely restored. The right arm of the son on the left is missing, as is the right hand of the son on the right.
