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.

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 :
