Who made this painting #381 ?

I am not quite sure, Tantale -  but here are some sources:

Lithographs from periodicals Neos Aristophanis and Ιl Papagallo. The Neos Aristophanis weekly, a publication devoted to political satire, first appeared at the end of the 19th c. following the example of the Italian Ιl Papagallo by Augusto Grossi. The Greek periodical was published by P. Pigadiotis and every issue contained a big colour lithograph scoring Greek politics. About 260 from these are today preserved at the National Historical Museum, as well as 60 from the Italian prototype.

Posting #389 - image attributed (most likely correctly) to Antoine Claudet.
This is a most interesting image. It's not exactly true photograph (which uses film), but a salt print from a calotype negative (different from Daguerreotype which also predated the "modern" photographic process, calotype was invented by William Talbot in 1840  and is, in fact, sometimes called Talbotype). It's the earliest known chess-related "photograph" (c.1845 ) and has oddly been mis-attributed to William Henry Fox Talbot by Jerzy Gizcyki (who erroneously gives the date as 1840) in his "History of Chess," as well as by Ken Whyld (who erroneously gives the date as 1846) in his "Guiness Chess: the Records."

I was curious and looked up some of this photograph stuff and can't actually find something that says photographs use film.  Just thinking of it now, I have always heard pictures captured by digital cameras called digital photos.  Everything I can find just says a photograph is an image created by light being captured on a light sensitive material.

Daguerrotypes and W Fox Talbot heralded the main birth of photography.
