Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo created new type of publication by representing human form with inanimate objects in the 16th century; at the end of the 17th century, Nicolas de l'Armessin (Larmessin) engraved a series of plates, Costumes Grotesques, in which tradesmen were depicted with tools of their trade as body parts. Engelbrecht issued similar series of figures in his publication Assemblage nouveau des manouvries habilles, to which this engraving belonged.
