A full length portrait of Roger Monk (d.1831) in the Tudor-style uniform of the Yeoman of the Guard (Beefeaters). A London businessman, he purchased a commission in the Guards, becoming Exon (equivalent to Corporal but in the Elizabethan meaning of a commissioned officer, similar to a captain) in 1805, holding the position until his death. Monk's uniform cost over £300 and was the last of its kind to be made for officers, being too expensive for the few ceremonial occasions for its use. Monk commissioned this oil, which now hangs in the hall of the Tallow Chandlers' Company, of which Monk had been master in 1826.
