The Game of Checkers by Knight

The Game of Checkers
1846 by artist William Knight.
  • This oil painting on board by game of checkers artist William Knight was a typical example of the narrative genre style of the artist in the mid 19th century that depicted daily scenes of common folk in a variety of settings.

  • The dark muted tones of the background and the dramatic use of light focused on the family group surrounding the two boys playing a leisurely game of checkers.

  • The artist William Knight, used a traditional triangular composition to establish the closeness of the family, the joy of the winner and the focal point of the checkerboard in the center of the painting.

  • The simplicity of the family scene and the boy’s gesture evoked the emotion clearly displayed and the subtle tonality of the image emphasized the warmth surrounding the checkers scene.
Arnauts Playing Draught by Knight

Arnauts Playing Draughts
1875 by artist William Knight.
  • Artist William Knight's hand colored engraving of two Albanian men in traditional dress, deeply engrossed in a game of checkers/draughts while sitting in the courtyard.

  • The postures of the players helped to create the mood surrounding the game at the checker board and the nature of the play.

  • Despite the simplicity of the setting, the viewer can easily sense the concentration behind the look of the player making the move on the game board.
