Maddening chess set in art donation!

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

"A Maddening Chess Set, Wonderland Vs. Looking Glass" (1977) by Catherine A. Ryan of Takoma Park, MD., part of R.J. Reynolds' art collection being provided to Arts Council. 

We found this interesting photo in a news story from WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (WGHP)

R.J. Reynolds Tobacco is giving an estimated 3,000 pieces of artwork from its corporate collection to the Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County. The combined value of the artwork is about $700,000.

The artwork includes this fascinating chess set!
