'Knight Watch' -or- 'Museum Pieces'

I couldn't decide which title I preferred for this post, so I used both.

Tata Steel Chess 2014 (0:52) • 'Chess on Tour - Rijksmuseum rd.4'

For more about the painting, see The Night Watch [Wikipedia]:-

The painting may be more properly titled by its long since forgotten name The Company of captain Frans Banning Cocq and lieutenant Willem van Ruytenburch preparing to march out. In the 18th century the painting became known as The Night Watch. It is prominently displayed in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, as the best known painting in its collection.

Some of the players in the video clip look bored?!
