The Card Players Canvas Print

Rs.2,399.00

Availability: In stock

Artist: Paul Cézanne

Year: 1893

Original Medium: Oil on Canvas

Original Size: 38" × 51"

Claim to fame: Most expensive artwork ever sold.

Just one in a series of 5 similar works, this version of Paul Cézanne’s The Card Players, is the most expensive painting ever sold.

The series of 5 is considered to be a cornerstone of Cézanne's work during the early-to-mid 1890s period, as well as a "prelude" to his final years, when he painted some of his most acclaimed work.

Each of the 5 painting depicts Provençal peasants immersed in smoking their pipes and playing cards. The subjects, all male, are displayed as studious within their card playing, eyes cast downward, intent on the game at hand. Cézanne adapted a motif from 17th-century Dutch and French genre painting which often depicted card games with rowdy, drunken gamblers in taverns, replacing them instead with stone-faced tradesmen in a more simplified setting. Whereas previous paintings of the genre had illustrated heightened moments of drama, Cézanne's portraits have been noted for their lack of drama, narrative, and conventional characterization. Other than an unused wine bottle in the two-player versions, there is an absence of drink and money, which were prominent fixtures of the 17th century genre. A painting hung in an Aix-en-Provence museum, near the artist's home, by one of the Le Nain brothers that depicts card players is widely believed to have been an inspiration for the works by Cézanne.

This version now resides in the private collection of Royal Family of Qatar who paid over $250 million in 2011.
