         The History and The Culture of Chess


 Vauvenargue
    April 9, 2005


Franšoise Frigola painted a picture entitled Chateau de Vauvenargue.

The Chateau de Vauvenargue is located  in the village of Vauvenargue which near Barrage de Bimont in Aix-en-Provence in southern France. The old Chateau was once owned by Pablo Picasso, in fact the great painter died there.

Morphy's most famous game, entitled the Opera Game, pitted Morphy against the Duke of Brunswick and the Count Isouard de Vauvenargue. Very little, and nothing that I could find, has been written about Isouard, but he apparently came from that small picturesque village southeast of Paris.

If anyone has any information at all, I would be interested in learning.
