The original work is dated in the years between 1890 and 1895 and it is kept at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, France. Attending cafés, Cézanne has the opportunity to see different scenes of card players, a subject that he paints in 5 versions. The canvas represents two men sitting in front of each other, engaged in a game of cards. The player on the left is dressed in a dark suit and hat, and he holds a pipe in his mouth. The challenger in front of him is wearing a light suit and a brown hat. Both figures look serious and concentrated. The men are silent, their eyes are low, as if the scene was "on standby". The surrounding environment seems cold and not very welcoming: there is no noise and the typical voices of the locals and the fun and the joy that characterize a playful moment such as a game of cards do not appear. The bottle on which the light is reflected acts as the central axis in the composition: dividing the space into two symmetrical zones, the contrast between the two players is even more evident. The insistent reproduction of this subject by Cézanne gave rise to an interesting interpretation of the picture: the opposition and competition between the two players is a metaphor to represent the difficulty that he met to convince his father about his artistic skills. One of the 5 versions of the work would have been sold in 2011 for the unofficial sum of about 254 million dollars: the highest paid painting in the world.
