Bernhard Horwitz was a German master and chess writer. He went to school in Berlin, where he studied art. From 1837 to 1843, he was part of a group of German chess players known as “The Pleiades”.
He moved to London in 1845.
His best chess result was winning a match against Henry Bird in 1851. He played in the first international chess tournament, London 1851, but he is best known for being the first pioneer in problem and endgame composition.
Horwitz’s Chess Studies (1851), co-authored with Joseph Kling was an important work at the time. Kasparyan’s “DOMINATION” features 70 of his studies, often being the first to use a theme which was later developed with greater depth and finesse by composers that followed.
