An 1893-6 painting in oils, The Card Players, by Paul Cézanne (1839-1906), the French post-impressionist artist. Cézanne visited the subject of card players several times. In this version, he shows only two players and captures the tension and division between them by clearly dividing the scene vertically using the bottle of wine and other strong vertical lines.
