    Perhaps nice to add a sculpture on this forum : a bronze statue of Bobby Fischer, about 20 x 15 cm, named in Dutch "De Bronzen Bob", The Bronze Bob, made in 1974 by  a Dutch sculptor Jits Bakker, the first prize we have won in a tournament of twenty business and trade concerns in Amsterdam.

    Although some decades ago, I still enjoy the fact that we played in both these tournaments, The Chess-Creation and also in The Chess-Olympiads For Companies in Amsterdam,   for approx. 20 years in succession, with a team of four colleagues of Geveke Technical Business.

    I am pretty new in posting pictures and now the subtitling is missing !

    Post 772 is by Moritz Jung, 1910 ; post 773 is titled Gioco di Scacchi, by Giovanni Garinei, born 1846 ; and post 774 is by Louis-Leopold Boilly, 1780, and shows both François-André Danican Philidor ( left, 54 years of age ) and Legall de Kermeur ( right, 78 years ! ) in their match in Café de la Régence in Paris.

    hello Ger, very nice to see some beautifull art here and also a piece you made yourself #779. i love how escher can make you think about dimensions :) i'll try to find a good picture of tarrash i can draw... it would be my first person with a moustache .. you made the Lasker-bust picture  yourself??

  • #758

    Hallo J-Pax : nice you try to draw Tarrasch, but I really hope you ment to say  that you should draw a picture of Emanuel Lasker ..., such in view of posts number 777 and 778 !    And, alas, no, I did not make that picture of the Lasker bust myself, I will come back on this subject, there are lots of memorabilia, e.g. see the official Lasker-Gesellschaft site ! site !

    This is really neat.  At first glance I thought the queen was higher than the knight.  I have always enjoyed M. C. Escher, too.
