Portraits of Sigismond de Serent dressed as a page to the Prince de Condé, and of his brother, Armand de Serent, in the uniform of a royal cavalry drummer. Drouais painted these portraits of the two sons of the Marquis de Serent, tutor to the sons of the Comte d’Artois. Comte Moïse de Camondo bought them in 1920 from the art dealer Georges Wildenstein
