“In a 1904 etching by Jacques Villon, Marcel and his younger sister Suzanne are also shown playing chess. Four years prior to the etching, at the age of thirteen, Marcel was taught to play chess by his brothers. This was the same year they also began teaching him to paint, the ironic coincidence of wich has been noted by numerous biographers.”
