'A cockfight in the countryside'

 

A large and impressive naive mid 19th century oil painting of a cockfight being held in the open air.

 

Local worthies and workers mix together, all kneeling on the grass to watch the fight. An action packed event somehow rendered static in a truly naive manner.
