movRomney032813.jpg

"Romney Gets Sent Back By Putin (Obama Laughs) Poker Art Poster Print."  "This 13"x16" art print poster of Russian political artist Nadia Khuzina's original painting captures her opinion and outlook on the 2012 American presidential election. ....  It depicts Vladimir Putin asserting his supposed authority over American politics by admonishing Mitt Romney after taking all of his money in a poker game. President Obama reacts at this situation under the gaze of Khuzina's 2009 self-portrait which looms in the typical Russian decor of Putin's imagined lair. This bdsm flavored work entitled "Russian Political Prisoner" featured in a Mikhail Shemyakin (one of Putin's favorite artists) exhibition in Russia as a tongue-in-cheek statement to Putin about Western media's biased understanding of Russia.

"The cards themselves reveal a presumptively overplayed hand of jacks by Romney, and a flopped straight by way of the 5 and 3 held by Putin. The community card board reads out 624KA. This high quality print clearly shows these fine details."

Not celebrities, but interesting -- 9 COOLIDGE PRINTS OF DOGS PLAYING POKER.  Click here to see a larger picture and my web page on these endearing animals.


About the two following tables, "ANIMALS PLAYING POKER" and "OTHERS PLAYING POKER":

¶ when I started this project I never dreamed there are so many pictures (mostly computer generated) on the internet of gag groups of animals and characters playing poker.  There must be over 100 different dog ones, so I am putting just a few dog pictures here.

¶ I started out with 500 pixel-wide pictures and comments on the source of each, but there are so many that I reduced the size to 250 pixels with virtually no comments.  You likely can find an enlarged picture if you copy/paste the text into a Google "image search" box.

Cezanne Breaks Record For World's Most Expensive Painting -- $250 million --
Playing Cards, but no Poker Chips!



Cezanne Breaks Record For World's Most Expensive Painting (as of January 2012, anyway) as
Qatar Royal Family pay £158m for The Card Players, in 2011

The Card Players 1894-95
Oil on canvas, 47.5 × 57 cm.

The nation of Qatar which is better known for its oil than its European art collection has purchased a painting by the post Impressionist, Paul Cézanne for what is thought to be the highest price ever paid for a work of art. The Card Players was purchased for more than £158.4 ($250m). There are four other versions of the painting located in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Musée d'Orsay, the Courtauld, and the Barnes Foundation. Qatar was ranked the world’s biggest contemporary art buyer last year. The Qatar National Museum is now a likely new home for The Card Players.

The painting was bought last year from George Embiricos, a Greek shipping magnate who passed away soon after the sale was completed. The amount paid to acquire it was disclosed yesterday by Vanity Fair Magazine. Embiricos had rarely loaned the painting to institutions. His estate rejected offers put in by two of the world’s top art dealers, Larry Gagosian and William Acquavella, of approximately £139 million when the Qatari royal family trumped the offer. The sale has been rumoured for over three months. The Qatar Royal family also notably purchased Jackson Pollock’s No 5, 1948, in 2006 for £88.7 -- per January 2012 news article.
