The Game of Checkers, Ghardaia

The Game of Checkers, Ghardaia
La partie de dames (1911), by artist Marghuerite Tedeschi.
  • The artist Marghuerite Tedeschi was based in Ghardaia, Algeria and painted genre scenes of daily life as seen in the Saharan cities and she favored the Orientalist style that was very popular in France at the time.

  • The painting depicts a street scene a casual game of checkers amongst the locals in the square; the players are enjoying a relaxing game around the checkerboard with shoes off and focus on the next play; the mood displays a friendly atmosphere outside in the village courtyard during the daytime in the bright sunshine and the players are portrayed totally engrossed in the checker moves on the checkerboard.

  • The motif of the painting readily displays with detailed realism the diverse cultural aspect of the people and the checkers game as a leisure activity.

  • The artist Marghuerite Tedeschi used warm colors in light, rich sandy, yellow and orange tones to convey the warmth of the climate and the friendship surrounding the checkers game as well as traditional clothing of the Algerian people.

  • This artist scene presents a clear visual image and historical representation of Northern Africa.
