Mid 19th Century Watercolour - The Dispute



A fine mid 19th Century watercolour scene with wonderful narrative. The scene is set inside a run down barn in which an old man and woman appear to be living with their dog. A finely dressed Scotsman, in kilt and tam o' shanter stands, leabning on the back oof a chair, in which sits a man of high standing. His wig and clothes suggest he may be a lawyer or man of the court. There appears to be a heated disagreement between the parties, with the seated gentleman with finger raised and a deep frown, directed at the old man who leans on his stick and points accusingly at the two men opposite. The old woman sits in the middle seemingly trying to appeal to her husband, with outstretched hand. The scene has a Dickensian feel in its narrative. The painting has been handsomely presented in a late 19th Century bird's eye maple veneer frame with crisp card mount. On wove.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and fading. There is some creasing in the lower left quadrant and another crease in the lower right.The frame is in fine condition.
