A fine oil on wooden panel by highly regarded artist William Douglas Almond 1868-1916. The painting shows an eighteenth century historical genre scene of a barber (complete with comb in hair) admiring a lady passing his shop.

William Douglas Almond was a specialist painter of genre of historical scene and lived in London, he exhibited 11 works at the Royal Academy and 39 at the Institute of oil painters as well as at many other top fight galleries.
