Tantale - It looks that Jill Battaglia (#485) was a better as painter than as chess player. The board is placed incorrectly Smile

hi winnie... you are sharp:) but i  like the photo anyway... i google the artist and found she is a photographer... it certainly looks like a painting.

also the painting in post 482. is GGREAT Lenin Gorky Krupskaya playing chess

Here is the game - those guys didn´t play just for the painter, in fact they knew a thing or two about chess !

It wasn't Lenin and Gorky that knew Alekhine's Defense theory so well already more than a hundred years ago, but the game took place in 1962 between players on two Soviet warships named Lenin and Gorky.

OK - that explains the high level of the game. I was quite amazed about that. Thanks fabelhaft !
