‘His Station and Four Aces’ shows the train conductor advising the passengers it is time to disembark. Unfortunately, one of them is very alarmed, he has almost no chips left, he’s holding four aces and it is time to get off!
From the mid-1900s to the mid-1910s, Cassius Marcellus Coolidge created sixteen oil paintings, all of which featured anthropomorphic dogs, including nine scenes of dogs playing poker.
