The Final Position

 

This chess position was reached in the "game of the century" (the last century)

between 26-year-old Donald Byrne and 13-year-old Bobby Fischer.
Fischer of course won.White (Byrne) is in checkmate.

The painting is square, though oriented as shown - as a diamond, and the black backgound is not part of the painting.

 

An earlier work, with the same position. I guess it wasn't my final painting of the Final Position!
