The Paintings of Samuel Bak

From Poliart:
Chess pieces are a favorite symbol that is used again and again throughout his paintings. In fact, more than two hundred of Bak's paintings contain chess pieces but never a complete set or complete board. The completion of a chess set or its figures would add validity to the idea that there are rules in life or war, when in reality there are no rules. Rules are for games not the works of artists.
