These cards feature an adaptation of artworks from Adolf Losifovich Charlemagne, a Russian painter from the late 1800s of historical, genre and battle scenes. He was also the creator of a popular design for playing cards known as the "Atlas".
In 1862 Charlemagne created the "New Figures" (watercolour). There were no jokers, no aces, and generally these cards were never published or created.
What were originally just sketches, etudes with watercolour in the style of cards from over 150 years ago have now been painstakingly recreated in digital format in honour of A. Charlemagne.
