Chess Masterworks

A one-of-a-kind APP featuring exquisitely filmed mini-documentaries of 25 of the world’s greatest chess sets––including the Russian masterpiece made by Faberge, said to be the world’s most valuable set. Also included are sets by Dadaist artist Man Ray; the Salvador Dali “Fingers” set; an amber set believed to have been fashioned in the workshop of Catherine the Great; a Murano glass set; a Meissen porcelain set; a complete set from the 16th Century, and many more.  Discussing the art value and political history of the sets are Susan Polgar, the world’s first female Grandmaster; Sarah Coffin, Curator of the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum; Graham Beal, Director of the Detroit Institute of Arts; and the collectors themselves, Dr. George and Vivian Dean.
