“Duty” by Edmund Blair Leighton (1853-1922). The title and the scene really makes you think.
Edward Leighton. I've always loved this painting, but the details are all wrong/romanticized. Have to find out when it was painted. It looks like post-Victoria, but is intending to depict Regency era. Maybe one of them's a time traveler. Awkward. Whatevs.
The Accolade. Edmund Blair Leighton A must have...
