A master of realistic paintings of the Baroque era, Caravaggio tells in his masterpieces about life around without a hint of reproach. At one of the paintings of 1596, called "Shuler", the Italian painter demonstrates the scene of petty card fraud. Such actions were the usual routine for the society of that time, obvious fun.

The composition of the image is built according to the classical canons. Three male figures are located in an imaginary triangle. This technique facilitates perception and makes the picture very balanced.

To the right at the table we see a young boy, he calmly looks at his cards. The face of a handsome young man is bright and somewhat naive. The other two participants in antique poker are accomplices.

A mature man is behind a boy who has peered at the deck. With a tenacious look, he reads suits and shows secret signs on his fingers to a younger player. Cut gloves of fabric are visible on his gloves - for the convenience of probing speckled cards.

The second fraudster is preparing to get prepared cards from the cut of clothes. He deliberately misleads a poker companion with a silly, distracted look. I would like to know how the party developed further. Did you manage to commit a deception? Was the gullible boy upset?

The artist paid much attention to the elaboration of costumes. The deceivers are dressed in colorful, striped clothes, which makes them look like jesters. On their hats are lush bird feathers.

The background pattern is neutral, beige. A large area illuminated by the sun is clearly visible on it. In general, there is a lot of light and a little darkened areas in the Shuler canvas. Refusing to dramatize, Caravaggio writes a hymn to a fun holiday and game. But we, the audience, are still saddened by deception: he calls to be more careful in life.
