Chess in Art
We recently received a copy of the book « Chess in Art – History of Chess in Painting 1100-1900” and were captivated and amazed by the intensive work and research invested in assembling this unique collection of art paintings depicting the game of chess from the 11th to the 19th century.
The Swiss Museum of Games is obviously interested in the history of games and we acknowledge the importance of studying art to learn more about the history and different aspects of games whether it be sociological, technological, political, or else. Discover our collection which also includes art pieces that depict the use of games in different time periods.
We highly recommend this book which contains high-quality images of art by more than 700 artists. Chess lovers everywhere will equally be thrilled and cannot wait to see the second volume which will depict images from 1900 to 2000.
