The Card Players - Paul Cezanne

Paul Cezanne 1894-1895 Oil on Canvas

I love this piece because it reminds me of my Abuelito who used to play cards when I was younger. I love how they colors blend in nicely. I like their hats in particular they are both unique. It's currently displayed in my favorite museum the Musee d'Orsay in Paris, France. It's part of a series of paintings. This is the most commonly known and the smallest version out of the 5 paintings. It's said that he eliminated details in the background to add to the effect of these two solo players just enjoying a relaxing game of cards rather than with spectators which makes it more intense.
