If you have been paying attention, you should know that one of the highest priced paintings ever sold is Paul Cezanne’s “The Card Players”. So if you are Fernando Botero  (or GNAY for that matter) and you are looking to put your stamp on a subject, why not go after one of the biggies. Botero does ( I haven’t yet ) with a series of paintings featuring big card players. He applies his own world view with great fun and flair and brings to the (card) table several great paintings. In my opinion - Botero trumps Cezanne.
