The title of the painting is the Accolade by Edmund Blair Leighton
(1834-1904). It is available from:

Around the Corner Fine Art
P.O.Box 1126 Centreville, VA 20122-8126  703-257-0821  800-999-3083

and it is in their current catalog in several formats as are a number
of other medievally themed paintings - all Victorian - but beautiful
anyway. The Print by itself is 24 x 34 and costs $47. If you go whole
hog you can pay up to $525+ for the mucho deluxe framed model. It's a
big print and will require a big frame.

We split the difference, bought it and had it custom framed here for a
bit less than half that. Maybe it inspired Hal Foster to do Prince
Valiant. There are some similarities.
