Anonyme Original-Lithographie. Um 1850

Der Spieler von Weiss wird gleich am Beginn des Spiels von seinem Gegner mit triumphierender Miene und unter dem Gelächter der Zuschauenden in eine schwierige Situation gebracht, die auf ein Schach Matt zu deuten scheint. Aber der junge Mann im Vordergrund scheint noch nicht aufzugeben. Wer weiss, ob er nicht doch und gegen die Erwartung seines Gegners und aller Zuschauer einen Ausweg findet?

Leider lässt sich zu diesem hübschen Blatt nichts Genaues sagen, da weder ein Künstler noch ein Verleger, noch ein genaues Druckdatum bezeichnet wird. Stil und Papier deuten jedoch einwandfrei auf die Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts hin.

Guter Erhaltungszustand. Nur minimale Altersspuren.
