The Card Players, by Paul Cézanne, painted in 1891, is 111 years old. Paul Cézanne painted many pictures of Mount Sainte-Victoire, smokers, card-players and bathers, and still lifes and portraits. His painting was at the beginning of a time when artists painted just to give you the idea of what the subject was. They were not interested in clear paintings. They enjoyed the colors more. You can tell this painting is in the middle of the other two paintings because the brush strokes don't look as careful as The Oath, and the colors are not as bright as The Old King.
