Marcel Duchamp
Marcel Duchamp

At left is a picture of Marcel Duchamp, enjoying a chess set designed and presented to him by fellow artist, Max Ernst.

To say that Duchamp was an avid chess player would be an understatement. He played at approximately expert to master strength, and it is well known that he had -- during the later part of his formidable career as a visual artist -- given up the pursuit of art in favor of chess.

Here is an interesting quote about art and chess that is attributed to Marcel Duchamp:


"I am still a victim of chess. It has all the beauty of art -- and much more. It cannot be commercialized. Chess is much purer than art in its social position."      Marcel Duchamp
