Tantale, where do you find these amazing pictures?

i made a drawing of a you karpov
Perhaps nice to add a sculpture on this forum : a bronze statue of Bobby Fischer, about 20 x 15 cm, named in Dutch "De Bronzen Bob", The Bronze Bob, made in 1974 by a Dutch sculptor Jits Bakker, the first prize we have won in a tournament of twenty business and trade concerns in Amsterdam.
Although some decades ago, I still enjoy the fact that we played in both these tournaments, The Chess-Creation and also in The Chess-Olympiads For Companies in Amsterdam, for approx. 20 years in succession, with a team of four colleagues of Geveke Technical Business.
Perhaps nice to add a sculpture on this forum...

I am pretty new in posting pictures and now the subtitling is missing !
Post 772 is by Moritz Jung, 1910 ; post 773 is titled Gioco di Scacchi, by Giovanni Garinei, born 1846 ; and post 774 is by Louis-Leopold Boilly, 1780, and shows both François-André Danican Philidor ( left, 54 years of age ) and Legall de Kermeur ( right, 78 years ! ) in their match in Café de la Régence in Paris.
This is called " a Scene in a London Eating House " in 1932 ; by Stanley Anderson, 1884-1966.
And finally, for today, my "hero" Emanuel Lasker :
Back to post nr 770, sculptures : another one, bust of Emanuel Lasker :
My arts-and-crafts on this rainy afternoon, with thanks to the great Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher :
hello Ger, very nice to see some beautifull art here and also a piece you made yourself #779. i love how escher can make you think about dimensions :) i'll try to find a good picture of tarrash i can draw... it would be my first person with a moustache .. you made the Lasker-bust picture yourself??
Hallo J-Pax : nice you try to draw Tarrasch, but I really hope you ment to say that you should draw a picture of Emanuel Lasker ..., such in view of posts number 777 and 778 ! And, alas, no, I did not make that picture of the Lasker bust myself, I will come back on this subject, there are lots of memorabilia, e.g. see the official Lasker-Gesellschaft site ! site !
yes indeed i meant Lasker... no idea how i came up with Tarrash... maybe i saw a game between the two??:)
first i have to finish a Capablanca drawing i am working on.
This is really neat. At first glance I thought the queen was higher than the knight. I have always enjoyed M. C. Escher, too.
