This work is from a series of preparatory drawings for Poker Game (1970). It is evidence of Day's process of experimenting with imagery and reconfiguring the relationships between elements within his tableaus. The remarkably rich series of drawing shows us that every element in Poker Game, as in all of Day's paintings, is deliberately rendered and placed, such that his finished compositions exhibit ease and confidence.
