Alexandre (Alessandro)-Auguste Fiocchi (1803 Paris - after 1860 Rochefort) was a well listed miniaturist, lithographer and art collector of a possibly Italian origin. From 1830 he studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Artes in Paris. In 1859 he bequeathed a great part of his art collection to the city of Rochefort (ca. 40 oil paintings and over 100 drawings), receiving in return a position of a museum conservator that he occupied from 1860. This collection became a foundation for the establishment of the Museum of Rochefort. The artist's own works were mainly miniatures on ivory (among them are many copies after Old Masters). One of them is in the Wallace Collection in London; another - in the Museum of Rochefort.
