Game Of Checkers
Artist James Hardy Jr.

James Hardy Jr. from 1832 to 1889,
Bristol, England.
  • Artist James Hardy was born into an artistic British family, as his father, James Hardy Sr. was a renowned landscape painter and his brother, Heywood, was a painter of equestrian and canine motifs depicted within genre settings; his cousin, Daniel Frederick Hardy, was a leading member of the Cranbrook colony of artists.

  • James Hardy was most renown for his paintings of dogs and game in hunting or sporting scenes and for his rustic landscapes often depicted in Highland scenery.

  • Artist James Hardy painted his classical themes in both oil and watercolor and the scenes often held an element of romanticism within the realistic portrayal.

  • In his painting, The Draughts (Checkers) Players, game of checkers artist James Hardy focused his genre scene on a family checkers game set in a rustic cabin; the rather conventional triangular composition depicted a father and son seated at a wooden table, facing each other across the checkerboard; the postures expressed the place each checkers player was in the game, as the male figure patiently gazes at the young boy trying to determine his next move with his checker piece; all the while the female looks intently at the checkerboard on the table.

  • This painting was a very small canvas of 6” x 8”, yet artist James Hardy was able to depict the cozy scene with detail in the setting and soft, subdued tones bringing expression to the quiet mood and pensive moment; the three figures were highlighted to bring focus to the checkers game.

  • The artist exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy and between 1862 and 1886 he showed 9 sporting scenes at the British Institution and 45 paintings at the Society of British Artists between 1853 and 187; he also had exhibits of his animal genre at the Suffolk Street Gallery and the New Watercolor Society, where he became a member in 1877.

  • Checkers artist James Hardy died in Bristol on April 4, of 1889.
