I have a print of M.C. Escher's "Metamorphosis II", an interesting artwork. You can view it and read about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metamorphosis_II
It has a chess position incorporated into it, which teaches several important (albeit common) chess concepts without words or moves.
MC Escher that's my favorite MC
Keep your 40 I'll just have an Earl Grey tea.
I'm a huge Escer fan...In fact my theme is this exact print inspired! (you can search it and use it if you want )
I really like all his work and my favorite has got to be either the eye with the skull in the pupil or his metamorphosis with the aligators (3-d not 2-d version)...ooo and of course the folded chess set as well, not as important a set-up though.
