Paul Cezanne. The great, if not the greatest of all painters. In spite of lousy, almost dilettantish compositions he succeeds over and over again in creating fantastic pictures with the help of the strength of the painting. So also here: both card players sit like the stuffed dummies silently and motionlessly at the table and look in their cards. No little waters nobody both murky ones.
As giraffes the two do not have naturally one from the hand to strategic advantage which can be pointed: Secretly they can dare simply times a view into the sheet of the otherone.
As in stone in accordance with ice it stands written on their necks: Rumbles thunder in April, the hoar frost play is gone.
