[Three men playing cards.]
Mezzotint with small margins, platemark 185 x 145mm (7¼ x 5¾"). Fine.
Three men gambling. Cards, dice and coins on the table, score marked in chalk. Broadside on wall behind. Engraved by the prolific early mezzotinter John Smith after Egbert van Heemskerck (1634/5-1704). Born in Haarlem, Heemskerck moved to England in the 1670s. His often satirical genre scenes (Quaker meetings were a speciality), derived from those of Ostade and Teniers, were popular with London engravers.
