Poker inspired art exhibition at Courtald Gallery

Poker inspired art exhibition at Courtald Gallery

Thursday, 11 November 2010

If, like John Juanda, you like your art as much as you enjoy poker, then a trip to the Courtald Gallery is a must for a rare exhibition featuring Paul Cezanne's card playing inspired paintings.

The London gallery is exhibiting a selection of Cezanne's iconic works featuring peasant card players. It is a rare opportunity to catch a glimpse of Cezanne's masterpiece, The Card Players, which is usually housed in the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

The timeless paintings feature a selection of poses that will be familiar to anyone who has sat round a card table and according to the art critic at The Independent they represent "The winning hand of a great master... To say that the whole is stunning is an understatement ..."

Tickets are priced at £7. More information is available at The Courtald Gallery.
