This commissioned painting is now in the private collection of Faruk Somer in Germany. 
Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy are walking a couple of dogs. Behind them a lady examines a gallery shop window run by Charlie Chaplin. Groucho Marx is lying in the shop window surrounded by portraits of his brothers and other comedians. I have set the scene in the late 1920s but the window provides a glimpse towards the future of comedy.
