The Small Dice Players

etching (1887)
Three figures in 17th century military costume are gathered around a table lit by a central light. One is standing, leaning on a spear. He is looking down on his comrades seated at the table, playing dice. His enlarged profile is sketched on the left. The paving of the room and the arched threshold evoke a guardhouse.
Only state, 142 mm × 109 mm.
