    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 !

    This is really neat.  At first glance I thought the queen was higher than the knight.  I have always enjoyed M. C. Escher, too.

    Also "Arts and Crafts " belong in this forum.  This is a hollow chess board, made in the  WW-II , helping people to go into hiding underground and to leave for abroad, hiding small documents inside :

    What a clever idea.  I wished the chessmen were shown.

    This is the way Galina Satonina saw Lasker, who was a very talented mathematician as well.  He published several mathematical papers and (quote) his thesis on geometrical calculus remains relevant in the computer age (unquote)...

    @ crosspinner : normal size chessmen, as this board has a normal size to prevent  suspicion...

    RomyGer

    @ j-pax : this drawing is by Charles D. Gibson, made in 1903, --  and Aljechin is born in 1892, so... just the looks...

    It should be clarified that none of the above mentioned chess greats are in the painting.

    @ batgirl , post nr 798 : thank you, you are right, I should have written two texts, one about the café and one with some names !

    So : Café Dominik, a famous coffee house in St Petersburg, address Newsky Prospect nr 24, and opened in 1841.     The painting is by G. Bakmanson, around 1903, an oilpainting on canvas, now in the local State Museum of St Petersburg.

    Than : Emanuel Schiffers ( 1850-1904 ) gave here his public lessons and Mikhail Tchigorin ( 1850-1908 ) started his carrier here around 1870.

    Petrov and Jaenisch have nothing to do with the painting, okay, thanks !
