Dupérac, Étienne (c.1525–1604). Paris-born French architect, painter, engraver, and landscape-architect. He is mostly remembered for his drawings of Antique objects made during his stay in Rome (1573–5), where he also prepared archaeologically based reconstructions. He designed the garden at Anet (c.1580) and St-Germain-en-Laye (1595). He may have been involved in the design of parts of the Tuileries, Paris, in the early C17 (destroyed).
