Artist's description:

The existence of unbreakable rules like in chess prevents that incongruous situations like this one can take place: all pawns die and kings survive and meet each other as friends while the blood of those who truly build our civilization is spilled on the ground. Of course any resemblance to reality is pure coincidence :)

As a technical curiosity, in this work I used for the first time soft pastel on canvas. This unusual combination allows (using adhesives and varnish) pastel dust to stick into the canvas and creates very interesting pure pigment granules.

On 3 cm deep stretcher bars, no need to frame. It can also be sent unframed.

All my works are unique, original and have been made with professional art supplies on pH neutral and acid free supports. Paintings are varnished to achieve the highest degree of conservation and lightfastness rate.
