22 May: Photo reconnaissance

In an earlier post, on 11 May, I wrote that I had skimmed some Russian newspapers in the hotel , looking for news and pictures about the 2012 match and chess in general. In “Vedomosti” (Russian: Ведомости, literally “The Record”, http://www.vedomosti.ru/eng) I found this picture  in the Sports section. I had never seen this lovely picture from the 1985-1986 match between Gary Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov.

In the Multimedia Art Museum in Moscow, I discovered the picture in the exhibition: “Chess figures of the 20th Century”.

And the text that goes with the picture:

Question answered.
