Three faceless men in hats seem intent on the card game that they are playing. Nothing is distracting their concentration as they study the cards that have been dealt. A colorful and dynamic piece that uses wide brushstrokes to illuminate human drama. The artist illuminates the men with a vivid gold halo-like effect around their figures. The detailed frame is a stunning structure to present this work of art. The fine detail of the frame’s lines are in contrast to the abstract brushstrokes of the painting.
This notorious artist’s signature is clearly evident in the lower right hand side of the work.
This painting is an investment as well as a beautiful piece of art that will work with any decor. Picture it in your den or living room. Wherever you place it, you will be delighted to display it in your home for many years.
