Chess Set Watercolor by Zev Daniel Harris
Intriguing watercolor of a chess board with three elaborate pieces: the king, the queen and the bishop, signed by the artist.
The artist, born Daniel Harris, studied at the Masters Institute of the Roerich Museum in Hungary, in New York City at the National Academy of Design, and at New York University, where he also taught for two years.
His artistic talents were discovered in the early 1940s, and he was invited to exhibit in the Abstract & Surrealist Art in America exhibition at the San Francisco Museum of Art in 1944.
Harris changed his name to Zev (which means wolf in Hungarian) when he moved to Rome in 1953, and exhibited regularly in Europe, particularly France, Spain and Italy, until his death in 1987.
