Jean-Charles de la Fosse was a French decorative designer, engraver and architect who was one of the creators of the Louis Seize style. These plates came from his magnum opus, La Nouvelle Iconologie Historique, published in Amsterdam and Paris beginning in 1768. This important series contained his designs for furniture, decorations and architectural ornaments in the Louis XVI style.
