Author: Rowlandson, Thomas, 1756-1827,

The man on the right pulls out an ace of spades from the five cards in his hand and shows it with a grimace of satisfaction. His opponent (left), in profile to the right, looks at it with an expression of consternation, frowning and opening his mouth wide. The pack and other cards lie on the table. The men are probably portraits. The successful player is middle-aged, plainly dressed, with a bob-wig; the other is younger, very thin, and more fashionably dressed, with a long pigtail queue."--British Museum online catalogue.
