1877/18: A charming and exquisitely detailed OIL PAINTING on canvas which depicts a gentleman being attended to by two young women, perhaps his daughters, who are helping him to fasten his gauntlets, prior to a duel. His sword awaits on the chair beside him, and his flamboyant feathered hat can be seen on the table.

Petino ~ almost certainly Italian. 19 x 16.5ins (48 x 42cms) including the good frame. c.1850
