Description

By Francis M. Naumann, Bradley Bailey and Jennifer Shahade

Marcel Duchamp was both an artist and a chess player, but until now,  little was known of his chess activities. In analyzing Duchamp's  games--seeing how he reacted in specific situations during play--we can  better understand how his mind worked, and gain insight into the  strategies that motivated his work as an artist. Duchamp saw a  correlation between art and chess, and actively sought opportunities to  combine the two seemingly unrelated disciplines. Jennifer  Shahade selects and expertly analyzes fifteen of Duchamp’s chess games,  which are laid out by Jean Sabrier in a font that replicates Duchamp’s Design for Chessmen (1918).
