Abstract:
Inside a wig-maker's shop a bald man sitting on a stool squirms in agony as an elder woman attends to the wound on his forehead. Another man, standing to their right, looks on with visible discomfort. To their left is a table laid with scissors, razors, pliers, basin, small length of cloth and a bottle of 'Jalap.' A cat sits next to the cloth. In the background, on a wide window-sill, are wig-maker's tools and a wig in progress. Several finished wigs hang on pegs above the window. A number of boxes with the customers' names on them stand on a shelf above the door and an almanack hangs on the wall behind it. The door is wide open revealing in the background two men fighting a duel in front of the 'Crown' tavern, surrounded by several onlookers.
