(fl 1534; d between 7 Feb and 28 June 1567). Italian sculptor, stuccoist and painter, active in France. He was a pupil of giovanni francesco Rustici, whom he accompanied to France, and he is usually identified as the ‘Laurent Regnauldin’ recorded from 1534 as a Florentine painter at the château of Fontainebleau. His actual role seems to have been that of a sculptor and stucco modeller in the team of artists directed by francesco Primaticcio that was responsible for the decoration of the Chambre du Roi (1535; destr.), the Chambre de la Reine (1535–6; destr. except for the chimney-piece) and the room above the Porte Dorée (destr.)
