This energetic sketch depicts two episodes: card players and a smoker lighting his pipe in a fire. Several creative pictorial elements bring this drawing to life. Notice the rapt attention of the players as their opponent presents his card, his own facial expression hidden by his raised arm. Observe, too, the smoker’s discarded jacket and relaxed posture, his right foot resting sideways on the ground. Such narrative details point to Rembrandt’s authorship, but some scholars have doubted the attribution based on what they feel is an inconsistent application of line. More research into Rembrandt’s genre drawings is necessary to make a definitive judgment on this dynamic drawing.
