Dominique Barrière

Dominique Barriere (c.1622-1678) was a French painter and engraver .


Barrier was born at Marseilles in about 1622. He was most likely in Rome, where he had a considerable number of plates, after Claude and other landscape painters, and other subjects. They are neatly etched in the manner of Stefano della Bella . He died in Rome in 1678. He sometimes signed his plate, Dominicus Barriere Massiliensis, and sometimes with the cipher which is the mark used by Domenico del Barbiere , and their mistakes are very different. [1]
