ANDREANI, ANDREA, Italian engraver on wood, in chiaroscuro, was born at Mantua about 1540 (Brulliot says 1560) and died at Rome in 1623. His engravings are scarce and valuable, and are chiefly copies of Mantegna, Dürer and Titian. The most remarkable of his works are “Mercury and Ignorance,” the “Deluge,” “Pharaoh's host drowned in the Red Sea” (after Titian), the “Triumph of Caesar” (after Mantegna), and “Christ retiring from the judgment-seat of Pilate.”
