Giovanni Antonio de Paoli

Giovanni Antonio de Paoli was an editor and printer active in Rome between 1589 and 1630, where he had a print shop in Santa Maria della Pace. Historical sources show that he petitioned and obtained publishing privileges from the Pope in 1599, 1605, and 1624. In his initial 1599 petition, de Paoli states unequivocally that he aims to ‘publish religious, rare and exemplary images, including portraits’. He would often purchase plates of other engravers after their deaths and reuse them in his own name. We know that he did this with the plates of Altiero Gatti, which were reprinted after Jatti’s death in 1596, but now with de Paoli’s name included as the owner.
