This painting, A Card Trick, is by an American
artist J. G. Brown. This painting, like the Millet painting,
features ordinary people as its subjects. Brown's style is more
traditional than Millet's because the brush strokes are very
small and detailed and give the painting an
almost photographic quality.
This painting presents a more realistic portrayal of everyday
people not typical in paintings
of the day.
