Detail knihy ~ Chess in Art, Peter Herel Raabenstein

Raabenstein’s project traces the references made to chess across 700 years of paintings, prints, and drawings. While the main body of the book only contains the images and their brief captions, an introductory essay goes into depth about the development of chess as a visual allegory, and the symbiotic developments in visual art and the game itself.
The uninterrupted flow of images with the consistent thread of the chess game allows the viewer to pick up on wider art historical trends. The book shows us the development in figure painting, the 17th Century Baroque liberation from the Classical, and the 18th Century return to painting distinctly 15th Century costume. Raabenstein has succeeded in creating a book that is about more than it promises.
