A. Pintura: Art Detective Chapter Three: The Mystery Painting

So to identify Miss Featherduster's painting, I would have to rely on my knowledge of subject, composition and style. I looked at the painting. I had some suspicions about what it might be, but I kept them to myself. She was paying me by the hour.

"Okay," I said, "Who shall we start with?"
