I have to agree with Jay there... I don't know any of this stuff. Can you tell me where you do your research? Various places? Or is it classified?
Good pictures and nice story on Max Ernst. I added an article on Duchamp in the chess players category. I always appreciate all your articles,works and chess journal, Batgirl.
Later Max Ernst and Dorothea Tanning would buy some land and build a home in Sedona, Arizona. Continuing the theme he established with King Playing With The Queen, Ernst created Capricorn in 1948. Later Lee Miller (once Man Ray's model/assistant, then a WWII photojournalist) would complete the cycle with a photograph she created.
Ernst and Tanning by Lee Miller
The painting on my blog was created by Dorothea Tanning who was married to Max Ernst. Mrs. Ernst, born in 1910, is still alive and has the distinction of being the oldest living Surrealist. She is now a writer and published her last book in 2004 (at age 94), I believe. The painting depicts a high-heeled shoe crushing a Bishop. It was Tanning's entry in Julien Levy's 1944 show, The Imagery of Chess (the show was the brainchild of Marcel Duchamp). She submitted this painting in contrast to Ernst's King Playing With The Queen (below). Tanning, as well as Max Ernst was an avid chess player, in fact she first met Ernst over a game of chess (which he won). Duchamp, of course, was smitten by chess and indulged in the game almost to the point of forsaking his art.
