This letter originally appeared in issue 199 of France Today magazine.

First of all, I love your magazine. Beautifully written and marvellously presented! I have a little French art mystery on my hands, as I try to figure out the location of the château ruin in this drawing by the famous Fauvist painter André Derain, from perhaps 1930 or so.

It’s quite possibly in Provence, but the artist travelled all around the country, and was associated with the towns of Collioure, Cagnes, Cassis and other places during his life. I thought if anyone knows where these ruins might be, it would be the readers of France Today!

Do you know where this castle is in France?
