"Poker Sympathy"- Cassius Marcellus Coolidge

This painting is an oil painting that was done by Cassius Coolidge in 1903. Coolidge did a collections of 16 oil paintings called Dogs Playing Poker. The series was commissioned to advertise for a cigar brand. I just thought that the picture was funny because it isn't really realistic which makes it interesting. I also like the use of detail and how it actually tells a story.
