The Game Continues. Chess in the Art of SAMUEL BAK.


THE GAME CONTINUES: CHESS in the ART of SAMUEL BAK. The Game Continues resumes the examination of the metaphor of chess in the work of Samuel Bak. His provocative chess-inspired landscapes illuminate the waste of war in a profaned world, and its impact on the human spirit. Bak's vision of conflict from the ancient to the modern era deflates romantic notions of heroic combat. His shattered chessboards rise dramatically out of a barren terrain, recording a decline in human majesty even as he invites us to reconstrue more fruitful imaginings for human desire. With keen insight and sensitivity, distinguished Holocaust scholar Lawrence L. Langer guides and enriches our understanding of this unusual artist's complex vision. Model 5083
