Pourtraicture ingenieuse de plusieurs façon de Masques. Fort utile aulx painctres, orseures, Taillieurs de pierres, voirriers et Taillieurs d'images[1] is a print collection of twenty-two grotesque masks designed by Cornelis Floris de Vriendt, engraved by Frans Huys and published in Antwerp in 1555 by Hans Liefrinck.

The title translates as 'Ingenious portrayal of several types of mask. Useful for painters, stoneworkers [and other trades]' (BibliOdyssey).

Details of Mira Calligraphiæ Monumenta Joris Hoefnagel also show grotesque drooping masks.
