At £63, this is the most expensive print George ever purchased and one of a large number of prints he bought in the week he finally became Prince Regent. George’s enthusiasm for this print was undoubtedly due to his fascination with Napoleon, who had commissioned the engraving to mark his coronation as emperor in 1804, although the print took four years to complete.

Purchased in 1811
