Likeness of John Calvin taken from a rare etching by Pierre Woieiriot. goldsmith, and engraver on copper and wood. This artist was born at Bar-de-luc in 1510. He was established at Lyons about the middle of the sixteenth century. His engravings are all distinguished by the monogram which may be observed on the etching itself, surmounted by the small cross of Lorraine. This engraving was issued previous to the death of Calvin, and probably during his last illness, as the likeness bears evident marks of premature decrepitude and debility.
