A set of SIX framed engravings, each 14" by 9" and 16 1/2" by 12 1/2" identically framed, featuring architectural facades and urns, by the very well known eighteenth century Flemish architect and engraver JEAN FRANCOIS DE NEUFFORGE (1714-1791). Neufforge is known for his "Recueil Elementaire d'Architecture", a landmark publication of its time, late editions containing 900 engravings of all aspects of 18th century architecture. The work went through a number of editions beginning in the 1750's, the final edition published in the 1780's. Facades, floor plans, doors, columns, vases/urns, stairways, fireplaces, fences were all pictured in the landmark work, which was widely referenced by European architects of the day. These classical works would grace any traditional interior. More attractive framing would greatly enhance the decorative potential. The 250 year old works are in generally clean condition, though several have some flaws, including a bit of foxing, a few discolored brown areas/modest water drop stains and so forth.
