Jean Eugene Buland's "Le Tripot" is an excellent example of the transition that saw him move away from his early Symbolism work to a much more realistic portrayal of scenes from everyday life.
Le Tripot
by Jean-Eugene Beland

"Le Tripot" (translated as "The Gambling Den" or "The Dive") provides an unblinking look at gamblers from all walks of life huddled around a gambling table, with most only possessing a few chips or coins in front of them. Everyone seems equally resigned to an unhappy end in the smoke-filled room, with an almost palpable sense of surrender and melancholy pervading each and every person.
