François Perrier (1590 in Pontarlier – 1650 in Paris), a French painter and etcher, is remembered for his two collections of prints after antique sculptures, the Segmenta nobilium signorum et statuarum quae temporis dentem invidium evasere, (Paris, 1638), and Icones et segmenta...quae Romae adhuc extant (Paris, 1645); they provided visual repertories of classical models for generations of European artists and connoisseurs.
