Interno (1921). Luigi (Gigi) Chessa (Italian, 1895-1935). Oil on board.
Chessa’s atmospheric and contemplative study depicts reading and chess in the home. The subject has buried her nose in her book, and the reduced position on the board might suggest that she is absorbed in an obscure endgame treatise, but more likely some racy potboiler that has nothing to do with chess. The intimate interior, and play with space and light, calls Vermeer to mind.
