Peaceful Fighter

Every bit as arrogant and decorative as the Regency dandies who flocked to watch him fight, the magnificent cock above displays a victor's serenity. Painted by England's Ben Marshall, known for his scenes of the hunt and horses, it was one of a pair, entitled Peace and War, respectively. Its counterpart (SI, June 4, 1956) appears with feathers trimmed, and spurred for combat. The two were engraved by C. Turner in 1820, and both have always been popular with collectors.
