Fabrizio Chiari (1621–1695), a painter and engraver, was born at Rome, according to Orlandi. He painted some frescoes in the palaces at Rome. We have some etchings by this artist after Nicolas Poussin, executed in a scratchy but masterly style, amongst which are:

  • Mars and Venus, in a landscape; Fabritius Clarus. 1635.
  • Venus and Adonis; signed Nicolaus Pussinus in. f. This etching has been attributed to N. Poussin, but it is by Chiari.
  • Venus and Mercury, with Children.
