    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...

    ha nice to see some art again and a very nice drawing #793... my first impressions was he looks like Aljechin ??

    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.
