"(Fr.) Paris. Pupil of barrias. Medals 1864, 1867. 1868, Legion of Honor 1870, Med. 3rd cl. 1878. An uneven game. 18 x 8. The luckless hostler is in the toils. It is easy to see how the game will end. The friar, in whom he would naturally have implicit confidence, has one card in his sleeve and another under the heel of his right sandal. All the accessories are painted with the freshness, skill and care which have made this artist's fame, while the contrast between the two faces is realistic and striking."
