A bit of a claim to fame here. I actually held in my gloved hands a complete book of these and similar sketches from the Royal Collection. I happened to be in a room when the Curator and a book restorer were doing some work on the volume. The Curator informed me and my colleagues that the sketches were worth about 1m each.... there were blinking dozens of them 😳😳.
True story. Early 80s

Stunning !,... WOW !,... the actual originals !,... did you get to open the book and look at the drawings ?!,... have you got the slightest idea, which I'm sure that you probably have, what a tiny minority that must make you a member of. ?!

I'm guessing,... and it's none of my business, nor anyone else's,... but,... Brigade of Guards. ?

I first saw those in a book of his drawings that I got from a library when I was at school,... and even then I thought that they were incredible.

This is believed to be a self portrait.
