Sieur Fossard, a musician at the court of Louis XIV, amassed a vast collection of theatrical and festival prints and drawings that was dispersed and largely lost after his death. 163 Fossard pictures are now preserved in Copenhagen, evidence of more has been recently discovered in London (two Fossard titlepages, one dated 1691, are here reproduced for the first time), and 85, many relating to the early commedia dell'arte, are in Stockholm. With reference to compositional and stylistic variants (reproduced), one Stockholm engraving is linked to Ambrose I Francken, a composite etching is attributed to Ambrogio Brambilla, and the Stockholm commedia dell'arte woodcuts are further discussed.
