Beautiful OLD oil painting "The Duel". English origins. Dealer/gallery tag that came with the painting is from John H Collings Ltd in Weston-super-Mare, UK and the business is long since gone. Purchased at auction in 1970s. Research may give an idea of the paintings age.
Signed "J Fortescue PXT 1866 or 1800?" but auction houses including Christie's seem to agree it's not painted in the style of THE Wm Banks Fortescue. Likely another artist with similar name. Make your own assessment.... buy it because you love it, like I did!
Original gilded plaster frame.
Price is FIRM. Elegant setting and subject matter will enhance any upscale home and decor. Moonlit sea, velvet clad aristocracy, sabers...possibly royalty given the medallion on man and tiara wearing woman in white dress.
