Party of Armenians Playing Cards, Jean Baptiste Vanmour, c. 1720 - c. 1737

oil on canvas, h 44.5cm × w 58.5cm. More details

Men and women while away the evening playing cards. The atmosphere is informal: the man in the foreground shows keen interest in his dining partner. As in Vanmour other ‘Turkish’ paintings, he accurately documented the details of the clothing, such as the fur-trimmed coats typically worn by Armenian men.
