Jean-Robert Ango was a French draughtsman and painter, noted for his numerous drawings rich in Italian and French ornament. He was born in France, and probably died in Rome. He lived and worked in Rome from 1759 to 1772. Nothing is known about his origins, his early life, his master, or how he got from France to Rome. Interest for Argo was renewed in the late 20th century and early 21st century, when four albums by Ango were acquired and exhibited by the Copper Hewitt National Design Museum, Smithsonian Institution. Julien's last mention of him was on January 16, 1773. According to French historian Pierre Rosenberg, Ango died in 1773.
