50 & 50 - A Family Meeting

William R Petty: 50 & 50 - A Family Meeting

The painting is believed to date to the late 1970s or early 1980s, and to depict a rugby test match between Ireland and Wales. The player in green facing the viewer is wearing a badge containing a green shamrock, and it could be argued that the 'family' referred to in the title is the Celtic family.
