For all lovers of art and the royal game: It is a perfect opportunity to enrich your library.
This book, in all, superbly juxtaposes of two great art forms – chess and painting..
This would surely enrich your collection because you would not find this book usually in the homes of a Chess enthusiast or even a player/champion.
“Chess in Art” is a large-format illustrated volume for all chess enthusiasts with a penchant for art.
What I like about the book is how chess appears in different cultures, and how this game is played hundreds of years ago, and even now
An insight into the game of Chess as it traveled across the centuries.
History of Chess in paintings – from year 1100 to 1900. Simply fascinating book!
A book to be enjoyed, leafed through and reviewed calmly. A work that simply makes us understand how our game is something that goes beyond time and cultures, beyond styles and fashions
Through the paintings you can travel from the entrance of chess in Europe until the end of the 19th century.
