Can you spare £100,000? Charles Brandon for sale!

My friend Martin who’s a whiz at coming across the unusual, alerted me to this; a rarely seen portrait of Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk.


Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk, by an Unknown Artist. Private Collection.

 The portrait shows Brandon’s resemblance to his brother–in-law and friend Henry VIII, and his virile good looks that so appealed to the King’s sister Mary, whom Brandon married in secret in 1515. 

Sotheby’s has it valued at £100,000 to £150,000. I’ll have to settle for the postcard.
