Nicolás de Gangoiti (September 30, 1801 - January 6, 1857) was a Spanish artist and engraver active in Madrid during the early 19th century. Gangoiti was born in Madrid, the son of the Spanish artist, line and letter engraver Pedro Manuel de Gangoiti. Nicolás probably mastered letter engraving under his father's tutelage, and later studied under the painter Vincente López. Although he wanted to pursue a career as a painter, his father's declining health and advanced age, forced him to take up the more lucrative engraving profession. He worked extensively as a letter engraver for the Depósito Hidrográfico. He was the older brother of Juan Gangoiti (July 12, 1816 - February 8, 1878), also an artist and engraver.
