Description

Edited by Nancy Ireson and Barnaby Wright

Paul Czannes famous paintings of peasant card players and pipe smokers have long been considered to be among his most iconic and powerful works. They were described by one of Czannes early biographers as being equal to the most beautiful works of art in the world. This is the first publication dedicated to Czannes Card Players and their exquisite preparatory drawings and oil studies. In these powerful works the artist conveys the gravitas and stoicism of his peasant sitters, for whom he felt great admiration. As he told one visitor to his studio, I love above all else the appearance of people who have grown old without breaking with old customs.

160 pages, 105 illustrations (83 in full color). 8 1/2'' x 10 1/4''. Paper.
