    Yes, many of these paintings are stunning.

    Btw, what counts as art for the purposes of this thread? Does it have to be a painting? Or a physical artifact? Would an artistic rendition done entirely virtually be of any interest (as long as it is aesthetically pleasing)?

    hi fburton, i think you/we should post anything you consider ART... if we don't agree.. nice :) i like a good/friendly disscusion...some might say aesthetically pleasing is not important... to me it is!!

    I am glad because after working hard, the slideshow

    http://www.jmrw.com/Chess/Tableau_echecs/index.htm#diaporama

    seems to works fine.

    Soon I will add under the paintings the name of the artist, the date of this birth and death (if), the title of the painting and the year it was made. Maybe the nationality of the artist too.

    If you encounter still some problem under a browser or if you would appreciate some modification please tell me.
