Biography

Engraver; founder of the Audran dynasty. Brother of Claude (and changed his initial to K in order to distinguish the two men), and uncle of Girard. Said to have been in Rome 1616/9-27, and again 1632-45, but these dates need better fixing. He was certainly in Rome 1632-4 when he is documented living with Swanevelt (Oud Holland 1994, 2)
