Helen of Troy: checkmate

First move: the lady is abducted,
not totally against her will.
Final move: game over by
a treacherous horse.
In the meantime: a lot of

Own rules of an ancient Greec
chessplay: against all odds.

Edna Dott As I recall, her company was worse before the abduction :)) I so appreciate your bringing together myth and Art so beautifully, with your words and your brushstrokes. Love it.

Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert José, Jean Michel, Romain and Edna, thank you very much for your comments. Thanks for judging the compositional and intentional qualities. Edna, after the abduction she was not in far better circumstances. It has been a very diffuse life she lived and had to shoulder. She, herself was of course also a kind of a Trojan Horse.

Roberto De Mitri avatar
Roberto De Mitri A painting that proposes itself as a representation of the famous "Encomio di Elena" of the Sophist Gorgias. So Troy's war did not start because of Elena's fault ... but because of the bad companies she used to attend! :) ... The logos is a powerful lord! and excellent work!

Lucas Dumrauf avatar
Lucas Dumrauf Beautiful work Jos!
23 April 2017 at 06:16am
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Roberto, thanks for your reference to the enigmatic text of the sophist Gorgias: the Encomium of Helen. Helen is a fascinating metaphor about moral responsibility, faith and fate, the gods, logos and Eros. I have tried to play with different dimensions in the text of the poem and in the expression of the painting. As Regina Susanne earlier mentioned, there are distinguished faces, anyway mor then three in the painting. She is right, it is a layered concept. Thanks Roberto for your observation and comment. Very interesting and enriching.
