19th C Naive vernacular allegorical oil painting

British School, early 19th century of Scottish interest. An interesting and naive vernacular allegorical scene with storm clouds symbolically gathering overhead, possibly depicting a cuckolded nobleman or royal personage asleep on a chair, a noble woman (perhaps his wife) in conversation with another nobleman who appears to be holding a phial of sleeping draught, both men wearing chivalric orders on their breasts.

Oil on canvas.

Restored and re-lined, within an old, sympathetically aged frame.

64cm x 52cm including frame (55cm x 42cm excluding frame).


  • H: 64cm (25.20in)
