The Chess Players (1929). Sir John Lavery (Irish, 1856‑1941). Oil on canvas. Tate.
The picture shows the Hon. Margaret and the Hon. Rosemary Scott-Ellis, daughters of Thomas Scott-Ellis, 8th Baron Howard de Walden. The girls have put aside their books for a game a chess, perhaps at Chirk Castle, Denbighshire, where the Scott-Ellis family lived for years.

Love this painting but hadn’t seen the explanation. Thank you!

For people interested in Hunter S. Thompson, The Joke’s Over is an indispensable read. A really straightforward remembrance by Ralph Steadman, who was Sir John Tenniel to Thompson’s Lewis Carroll.
