I'm looking for any articles celebrating the chess work of Dutch artist Rupert van der Linden.

Can you help ?

Thanks ! :D

John,

Probably you already found: https://www.lambiek.net/artists/l/linde ... he%201960s.
Also 3 of his drawings for New in Chess here towards bottom of page: https://kenyachessmasala.com/2015/05/th ... onias.html
Perhaps New in Chess once did an article about him.
His style looks familiar.

Thanks for that.

I came across a whole crop of his chess drawings that I've not seen elsewhere and was curious as to their history.

Another drawer of chess line drawings is Roger Morgan.

There's some good stuff on that page
"Do you play chess?"
"Yes, but I prefer a game with a better chance of cheating."
