Burra was fascinated with skulls and skeletons and often used dice and card players in his works. These are not mere cafe games; they suggest a far more sinister meaning. All these elements are combined within an exotic Moorish setting in this work - a visual catalogue of Burra's preoccupations during this period.
Purchased from the artist in circa 1947; Christie's.
