This and the following five lots have red leather labels affixed to the reserve stamped in gold with the identification of the sitters. Of this group only one is dated (1821), that of Elisaveta Alekseevna, Empress of Russia (lot 321). Each work is numbered and mounted in identical frames, suggesting they are part of a large set. As the portrait of Grand Duke Nicholas Pavlovich (lot 325) is labelled Nikoli I this indicates that the labels were applied after he became Emperor in 1826.
