Checkers 1897

Game of Checkers - 1897, by Artist Charles Whipple.
  • Charles Whipple received his major art instruction in Paris under Adolphe Bouguereau, Joseph Fleury and Gabriel Ferrier.

  • Artist Whipple a studio in the Sherwood Studio building in New York; became known as a portrait, genre and mural artist who worked in oil and fresco media.

  • Charles Whipple's genre scenes reflected the daily activity of ordinary people such as in the ‘Game of Checkers’ capturing a casual moment of two friends at the checkerboard; however, Whipple’s focus appeared to be more on the portraits of his characters than the game of checkers as the men take precedence in the pictorial image.

  • Among his major works were the realistic portraits of Presidents William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt and Generals Nelson A. Miles and Grenville M. Dodge.

  • Artist Charles Whipple received an important commission to restore the Brumidi-Costaggini mural paintings in the senate wing of the United States Capitol building in Washington, DC; Whipple spent seven years from 1921 until 1928 retouching the decorations.

  • Whipple also painted Secretary Elkins from life in a portrait that was quite unique compared to his portraiture artist style of other known personages.
