A 19th-century Indian barber plies his trade outdoors amidst a host of fascinating acoutrements--there are leather bags stuffed with a plate, scissors, what appear to be straight razors; a bowl and whisk. The pair of shoes neatly placed in the foreground may belong to his client, who sits patiently, head bowed, receiving a close shave. The facial expressions, as well as the posture of the onlooker and client add a classical sense of repose to the composition.Please contact the gallery for a quote on shipping and insurance costs.
