Game of Checkers
Artist Jean Discart

Jean Baptiste Discart lived from 1850 to 1920 in France.
  • Checkers artist Jean Discart was a French Academic classical artist who favored genre painting of daily street scenes in Northern Africa, possibly Egypt.

  • Jean Discart was an Orientals who depicted street scenes with a natural realism and truth that told a clear story in detailed motifs of the area.

  • Game of checkers artist Jean Discart’s ‘The Draughts Players’ (Checkers Players) and his other Arab street scenes depicted with clarity and detail the theme and mood within the setting of each motif, and the story in each panel was clear, whether the image was two Arabs playing a leisurely game of checkers or a man selling wares or three musicians enjoying a session together.

  • The diamond patterns in the floor matched a similar pattern in the wall behind the game of checkers players and unify the composition foreground and background and yet contrast the folds in the traditional dress of the Arab men, who were naturally posed at the checkerboard.

  • The artist used warm, rich tones of red offset by black and neutral cream and yellow colors to bring depth and realism to the scene.

  • In each motif, traditional Arab costumes embody the postures of the figures and enhance the theme in each painting with classical detail and soft earth tones balanced by the touch of bold colors in the carpet, table design or wall decoration.

  • The genre setting of a typical daily scene in this part of the world were embellished with mini portraits of the Arab checkers players, musicians or an artist street vendor.

  • Jean Discart’s representation truly gave the viewer a glimpse of the Arab culture in his pictorial renditions within these local street scenes and were certainly an excellent example of the classical style of painting prominent in France at the time.
