Renaissance Card players

Card players (c.1520) by the Dutch painter Lucas van Leyden (1494-1533). A mixed group of men and women are playing cards. They are gambling seriously because there’s a lot of money on the table.
To me it’s surprising how up-to-date the cards are looking totally in contrast to the renaissance dresses.
