Game Of Checkers

Checkers Artist Charles Hunt Jr.

Charles Hunt Jr. from 1829 to 1900 was British.
  • He was the son of artist, Charles Hunt (1803-1877) and he was exposed to the world of art as seen through his father’s eyes; he learned a lot about the genre style from Charles Sr. who frequently exhibited in private galleries until 1846, but it was not until Charles Sr. was about sixty that he presented his paintings to the Royal Academy of London; during his later years, the senior British artist painted humorous themes involving children performing in various play scenes such as police court or renditions of Shakespeare.

  • From a rich artistic heritage derived through his father, Charles Jr. also began to paint genre scenes in a classical, traditional mode using realistic detailing and expressionism.

  • Charles Hunt Jr.’s warm earth tones were often enhanced with occasional splotches of bold color.

  • ‘A Game of Draughts (Checkers)’ was painted primarily in soft, muted earth tones that befit the setting of the workshop barn; Hunt realistically depicted a simple game of checkers between a young boy, simply dressed and in bare feet and an older man, quite elegantly dressed; the subtle distinction between the two figures was an interesting feature in the composition and theme of the painting as the boy remained standing, gazing at the old checkers player, who was seated in a chair, contemplating the next checker move.

  • The addition of the animals informed the viewer that the checkers game took place in the barn.

  • The following year, Charles Hunt Jr. painted another artistic version of the same checkers theme, with only slight variations in the composition, which included a choice of different objects within the barn and stonework on the floor and instead of a horse in the background, the artist had included a woman gazing at the checkers players; also, the exterior view through the door at the back was different in this game of checkers motif.

  • However, the postures of the boy and the older man at the table facing the checkerboard were depicted by the checkers artist Charles Hunt Jr. This piece of art was the same and the facial expressions of the checkers players were very similar to the first painting; whether the earth tone colors and shadows were painted as dark is now hard to tell but the mood reflected was certainly much the same in both canvases and each genre motif depicted a moment in a game of checkers in the daily life of the figures.
