"(Germ.) Munich. Soldiers card playing. 14 x 12. The soldier with the pipe in his mouth has led a card which is a 'poser' to his antagonist, who is scratching his head in his perplexity. the latter's righthand neighbor is advising him what to do. this is a graceful composition, good in drawing and color, and of almost microscopic finish."
