This chapter explores the role of chess in capturing the subversion of art making in Salvador Dalí’s works. It compares Dalí’s privilege of the hand to Duchamp’s dismissal of the hand and his emphasis on the intellectual. It examines how playing chess can represent a new way of thinking about art, the artist, and creative expression. It also states that Dalí’s comments on chess and his appropriation of Duchamp’s works mark his own figurations of the artist as multiple and his homage to the Duchampian redefinition of authorship as an appropriative gesture.

Keywords:   chess, Salvador Dalí, privilege of the hand, dismissal of the hand, authorship
