Have you??????!!!!!! It's a very important question to me. It's something I'm always thinking about. I love Painting Arts and to buy something of Freddie's... is a dream... I made a research but never found something on the web - nor at christie's, sotheby's, nor at ebay - N O T H I N G. Those ones in the Box Set are so beautiful. He was a deep person and, of course, we love everything he did but his paintings are so professional, full of his own trait and colours. I love his drawings more than Leon Bakst's.

So exciting question to me, guys! Have you ever seen them for sale or in any collection?

I haven't seen any for sale, but they do exhist.

I heard a rumor, in the 1980s, Freddie would draw a small image of Bruce Spingsteen everyday.

On one site they were auctioning off originals drawn by him but I don't know what on because I saw it on my old comp.

I'd like to see the book illustrations Freddie made in the early 70s for Austin Knights agency.
