Delafosse was an indefatigable draughtsman, who produced an enormous number of designs for neoclassical works of art. These two drawings demonstrate the fecundity of his imagination. From 1768 many of Delafosse’s designs were published as engravings. Two collected editions came out in Amsterdam in 1785 and 1787. Apparently his style was long popular there.
