Francesco Vaccaro or Vicaro (24 September 1636 – 13 December 1675) was an Italian painter and engraver of the Baroque period, who trained in his native Bologna under Francesco Albani. He was chiefly known as a painter, from his landscape and architectural views. He published a treatise on perspective, embellished with plates designed and engraved by himself. His prints consist of twelve perspective views of ruins, fountains, and other edifices in Italy.
