Art Narrative of the recurring and likely-to-happen nightmare of an artist - to be cheated or to be exploited by galleries. Most struggling / developing artist will know the experience of being cheated out of her / his hard work and intellectual property by galleries and agents alike, who often pilfer their work little or no remittance. Galleries steal artwork, sometimes.

The duel occurs inside the gallery. Easel surrounded by paint bottles on the floor with the primary colors. Painting is on the floor. The painter (left) challenges the gallerist (right) to a duel, in defense of her hard work and intellectual property being stolen, while the judge of the duel (black) sits on a column and calmly watches.
