Over at Schaakkunst they show a series of paintings which have been inspired by Chess or use Chess as a theme.

The Schaakkunst collection (which is Dutch for chess and painting, or something like that) was the inspiration of Margreet Wevers and Geert van Tongeren, who got fifteen artists together to create these paintings.

They have touring around The Netherlands, and can be bought at Chess_Art.eu.

As for me, I remember a series of gorgeous Chess-related fantasy paintings that graced the covers of several issues of Dragon magazine in the 1980s, such as this one:

You can see many Dragon magazine covers at the Acaeum.
