Canadian Caissart

In this fortnightly series on Top eBay Chess Items by Price, I'm always happy to discover artwork where the subject is chess. Examples are few and far between. The auction for the painting pictured below was titled 'Ghitta Caiserman Roth Canadian / Quebec oil painting mid century chess game' and sold 'Best Offer' for $500.

The description said,

Ghitta Caiserman Roth (1923-2005) • Easily one of the nicest pieces she did • Oil on masonite approx 10"x 8" with original painted frame 16 3/4"x 14 3/4" • Signed lower front right • Tag to back • Title to back chess game • No paint loss, frame in used condition.
