    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...

    @ 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 !
