Description


Outstanding oil portrait of a group of rich or wealthy men playing chess in an interior.

The quality of this piece is evident in every part of the painting. From the hands, faces, chess pieces right down to the background figures. All of them are painting to the highest quality.

The style of this painting is similar to the work of John Singer Sargent, Philip De Laslo, J.J.Shannon or Anders Zorn in both the brushwork and the fluid way the artist has constructed the figures.

The painting came from a collection in Maimi, Florida.
