"The Cardsharps" by Caravaggio
I really like this card playing action scene from 1594. Card games have been popular for a very long time! Apparently cheating at cards has also been around since day one. I think cheating comes naturally, we have all seen it in young children. But, what is the underlying motivation to cheat? Why are people driven to do it? Card Player Painter’s Underlying Theme #1: GREED. Aha! I hope I can find a #2 tomorrow.
