DAVID SALA Le Joueur d'échecs, Casterman 2022 Original illustration for the bookplate accompanying the deluxe edition of Le Joueur d'échecs. Signed. Colored inks, watercolor, gouache and graphite on paper 48.9 × 76.5 cm (19.25 × 30.12 in.) For this image, created for the deluxe version of Le Joueur d'échecs, I created a contrast between the calm, composed figure and the sharp, unstructured motifs in the background: a way of representing Mr. B's mental state. The coloring was done with inks and watercolors, with the addition of gouache. The gouache, which I didn't use for the album, adds the extra texture and density I wanted for this illustration.
