Dorothea Tanning Endgame (1944)

“The Queen is represented by the white satin slipper that is literally stomping out the Bishop. The Queen dominates—not the King … It is nice Surrealist trope, because they’re (Dorothea and Ernst) against the traditional family. And you have a trompe l’oeil detail in the corner, as if the chessboard has been ripped open and you have a landscape where the Queens is going to run away to.” – Javier Pes 4 March 2019
