Playing Cards and Art: Gaetano Bellei

Italian artist Gaetano Bellei (1857-1922) dedicated some of his artworks (oil paintings) to playing card gamers. He liked to depict old people for this series of his artworks. Look how masterfully he conveyed emotions of players. I have to think that his choice of old people was not random. As a rule old people are more sincere in their emotions as they left their poker faces in their youth 🙂 I guess that is why these artworks based on Gaetano’s talent look so convincingly.
