Add To Cart

The suits now used on playing cards are said to have dated back to France in the 1400s where spades symbolized nobility. This painting is a juxtaposition of the sometimes crass and undignified behavior of one in authority against the beauty and elegance of one in their service, the latter, ironically, being the one acting more noble.

Text and title inspired by Violent Femmes song of the same name.
