Under the Magnifying Glass of Caricature
Pieces of wood – pawns, knights, kings – come to life when arranged on the chess board: they move, the attack, they defend themselves, they have shortcomings and idiosyncrasies all of their own. Led by a skilled hand, chess pieces revaeal an exciting world of wonder and beauty. The more chess players get to know the secrets and charms of chess, the stronger becomes their affinity for the game that has successfully endured for centuries.
Chess players and chess board events have inspired the artist to breath life into this peculiar army and it’s leaders and bring them nearer to us. The caricatures of Tal or Petrosian talk also about their chess playing style; that of the pawn projecting the shadow of q queen, abouts it’s ambition.
The caricaturist Jovan Prokopljevic, a name famous in this country as wll as abroad, has superbly brought together his talent of drawing and love of chess.
