4th of January – Chess Composition Day

wfcc-logo-transparentHappy Chess Composition Day!

Ten years ago (WCCC Rhodes, 2007) our organization (PCCC at that time) established the International Day of Chess Composition. According to the proposal by the Grandmaster Valentin Rudenko (1938-2016), today we celebrate an important date in the history of chess composition. On January 4th 1869, the Czech (Bohemian at that time) magazine “Svetozor” published an article by Antonín König (1836-1911), a painter and the founder of the Bohemian school in chess composition. This article is known as one of the earliest sources considering chess composition as an independent form of Art.
