In the 1958 Chess tournament in Israel, the caricaturist Buchwald drew caricatures of the foreing players -- as could have been expected, they raised great interest, this being the first international tournament in the young state's history.

We have already seen Samuel "Sammy" Reshevsky's caricature. Below are those of (in order) Arthur Dunkelblum, Robert Wade, Ignacy Branicki, Carel van der Berg, Silvan Burstein, and Laszlo Szabo. The originals are handing in Beit Ha'Sachmat in Tel Aviv, the Israeli Chess Federation's headquarters.
