This stage set partakes of elements found in Berain's designs but is not by the great master of the French baroque stage. At left the colonnade is adorned with figures of Justice and Prudence with Abundance holding a cornucopia. The bridge in the background is adorned with figural groups, including a River God and Goddess at center, who pour water onto a group adorning a fountain on the face of the bridge support. The architecture, to the left and right of the arch, is decorated with military trophies. There is a view to a military encampment in the background. It is clearly a working drawing, as the artist added two columns supporting the arch over existing figures. Despite the abundance of detail, the sheet has yet to be connected with a specific performance.
Oenslager, Donald, 1902-1975, former owner.
