Grotteske Figuren is a set of prints by Arent van Bolten, the Dutch draughtsman and goldsmith, they are supposedly seven sheets under, published and engraved by Pierre Firens before 1616 )

Suite, probablement complete, de sept planches: figures grotesques, mascarons, coupes, cuillères, dont 3 planches signées: « firens ex. ». La septième planche, non décrite dans la literature, montre deux ange se regardant, celui de droite vu de face, tenant une banderole (même format, même double trait carré et se trouvait reliée avec les planches precedents). L’attribution de la suite à Arend van Bolten est fondée sur les dessins préparatoires, dont un signé «arent van Bolten fecit », conserves au British Museum de Londres (A. E. Popham, Catalogue of Drawings by Dutch and Flemish Artists in the British Museum, vol. V, Londres, 1932, p. 96-136). [1]
