|Jul-30-12|| ||TheFocus: Why don't more artists play chess? Do most of their games get drawn?|
|Jul-30-12|| ||TheFocus: If all Rook endings are drawn, would Queen endings be painted?|

|Jan-01-13|| ||SBC: I just wanted to give the updated URL for my page on Chess and the Surrealists (and Dadaists, of course):
and some more of Surrealists:
On the lady artists of that time:
a little more on Duchamp:
|Mar-19-13|| ||Conrad93: A revolutionary! He showed the world how bad art can get without losing the name of "art."|
Now all a class of amateurs need is some philosophical nonsense behind their "masterpieces" and the public will flock to see their hard work, if it can be called that.
|Jul-28-13|| ||duchamp64: Happy Birthday Marcel! Celebrate your day "With Hidden Noise".|
|Jul-29-13|| ||redlance: Happy Birthday!!!|
|Jul-29-13|| ||offramp: "I am not dead. I am in Herne Bay."|
|Aug-08-13|| ||GumboGambit: According to Rybka, his move into Dadaism was a wasted effort and lost a tempo.|

< "I am still a victim of chess. It has all the beauty of art -- and much more. It cannot be commercialized. Chess is much purer than art in its social position." >
|Oct-24-13|| ||Penguincw: ♔ Quote of the Day ♔
< "The chess pieces are the block alphabet which shapes thoughts; and these thoughts, although making a visual design on the chess-board, express their beauty abstractly, like a poem." >
I like how Duchamp treats chess as an art (or art as chess).
|Oct-25-13|| ||Penguincw: ♔ Quote of the Day ♔
< "Chess players are madmen of a certain quality, the way the artist is supposed to be, and isn't, in general." >
I guess it's time for Duchamp to have his quotes featured. Tartakower could be next.
|Oct-27-13|| ||Penguincw: ♔ Quote of the Day ♔
< "Not all artists may be chess players, but all chess players are artists." >
I remember this quote!
|Mar-09-14|| ||offramp: It reminds me of the famous quote, <All Irishmen are kings but not all kings are Irishmen.>|

|Jul-28-14|| ||Penguincw: Happy Birthday to artist and chess master, Marcel Duchamp.|
|Aug-25-14|| ||ColeTrane: L.H.O.O.Q.
|Apr-18-15|| ||MissScarlett: It's a pity the score of the simul game he lost to Capablanca in 1922 in New York didn't survive. I can see it now: <The Champ vs Duchamp>|

|May-23-15|| ||TheFocus: < Beauty in chess is closer to beauty in poetry; the chess pieces are the block alphabet which shapes thoughts, and these thoughts, although making a visual design on the chessboard, express their beauty abstractly, like a poem. Actually, I believe that every chess player experiences a mixture of two aesthetic pleasures: first, the abstract image akin to the poetic idea of writing; secondly, the sensuous pleasure of the ideographic execution of that image on the chessboard. From my close contact with artists and chess players, I have come to the personal conclusion that while all artists are not chess players, all chess players are artists> - Marcel Duchamp - August 30, 1952, address to the New York State Chess Association.|
|May-24-15|| ||TheFocus: <I play chess every day and night, and nothing interests me more than finding the right move> - Marcel Duchamp.|
|May-28-15|| ||TheFocus: <All this twaddle, the existence of God, atheism, determinism, liberation, societies, death, etc., are pieces of a chess game called language, and they are amusing only if one does not preoccupy oneself with 'winning or losing' this game of chess> - Marcel Duchamp.|
