Ch√Ęteau du Verduron

The Château du Verduron known as the Château des Sphinx owes its original fame to Louis Blouin, who held the prominent position of head valet in the court of Louis XIV of France from 1704 until 1715. Other distinguished owners of the property included Victorien Sardou, the French dramatist and one-time mayor of the Parisian suburb of Marly-le-Roi; the Château du Verduron is located on Place Victorien Sardou in Marly-le-Roi, a commune in the department of Yvelines. A simple one-story structure, it passed through a succession of owners following its original construction. In the early 2000s, it was purchased by SCI Le Verduron; this company commissioned COGEMAD to restore the building under the direction of Emad Khashoggi, who managed the Château Louis XIV project in Louveciennes and the restoration of the Palais Rose in Vésinet. The history of this property is complex. In the Middle Ages, the current site of the Château du Verduron was occupied by the lords of the Montmorency family; the property passed through a succession of owners.

Legend has obscured details of the site's history, in part due to some confusion between Jérôme Blouin and his brother Louis, the head valet of King Louis XIV. Some scholars believe that Louis XIV gave a portion of the former seigneurial domain to Louis Blouin, his head valet and the governor of Versailles and Marly, the two major royal castles of the period. Others think that Louis Blouin acquired this property from Léon Bierry, the king's close advisor, who held the important financial office of contrôleur général des rentes in the Hôtel de Ville; the GRAHAL study of 2002, based on notarized documents found in the National Archives and the Departmental Archives of Versailles, refer to Blouin as the owner of the property only after 1726 than Louis XIV’s death Prior to that date, the property was occupied by the daughter of Léon Bierry and her husband, named Fresson, an attorney serving in the parliament of Versailles. The couple made substantial additions to the existing property. In 1722, Fresson’s heirs sold the domain to César-Pierre Landais de Soisel, Louis XIV’s councilor and secretary.

He in turn provided a lifetime lease on the property to Blouin in 1726. Blouin left a strong mark on this monument’s history, whatever the precise details of his occupancy there. Described as “the king’s favorite” and “the little patron,” Blouin was considered to be a man of taste and culture, he loved to surround himself with “everything of distinction in the world of arts and letters.” A visitor to the property in Marly would have encountered prominent figures of the era, including Coysevox, Boileau and Mignard. After Blouin died in 1729, the Comtesse de Feuquières, the daughter of the painter Mignard and Blouin's mistress, occupied the property until her own death in 1742; the Comtesse de Vassé purchased the property in 1751 and lived there until she died in June 1768. In 1769, the Comte de Jaucourt, the heir of the Comtesse de Vassé, sold the château to Augustin-Louis-Marie Rouillé, the chevalier and seigneur of Vaugien; that same year, Rouillé sold the usufruct of the property to Madame de Saint-Martin, whose husband obtained the right to exploit the ice ponds in the surrounding park.

Subsequently, in 1781, Rouillé, ruined financially sold the bare ownership of the property to the Villemoriens. In 1784, they obtained full ownership by purchasing the rights of usufruct from the heir of the widowed Madame de Saint-Martin. Monsieur de Villemorien, the Farmer General, his wife, herself the daughter of a Farmer General, owned land separated from the Château du Verduron by a road through the Forest of Marly, a royal domain, they received permission to thus enlarge their property. The residence was famed for the hostess's opulent festivities and the distinguished guests who attended them, including Saint-Aubin, who immortalized these gala celebrations in his engraving Le Bal paré. Madame de Villemorien, widowed and subsequently remarried, sold the Château du Verduron to Charles-Michel Trudaine de la Sablière in 1792, he was perished on the scaffold shortly thereafter. Sixteen heirs contested the estate the property in Marly. Citizen Augustin d’Herblez and his wife prevailed by purchasing the shares of the other heirs.

The Château changed hands again in 1797, bought by Marie-Joseph Bourgouin. The unoccupied residence was imperiled until its purchase by the Parisian banker Pierre-Antoine Ravel in June 1802. An anecdote from this period tells of the hunting expedition of Napoleon Bonaparte the First Consul, who had the gates of the abandoned park opened so that his company could ride through the chateau's salon in pursuit of a stag. Ravel's heir sold the property one last time in 1838 to Anne-Elie-Marie de Montmorency-Luxembourg, a distant descendant of the lords of the Montmorency family, she occupied the properties of her ancestors under the Restoration, but only briefly. Fearing death on the scaffold, she was bullied out of her ownership rights by her politically liberal neighbors, who were allied to Marly’s mayor. Upon her death, the property was retroceded by her heir to his relatives and Monsieur Béthune-Sully, they used the château as a private hospital for Madame Béthune-Sully. In 1863, “a wanderer, mounted on a donkey that bore him through the woods at will had his steed halt at the edge of a broad hollow covered with an abundance of tasty thistles.

Our wanderer, enchanted by the spot’s cool air and solitude, urged his mount through the lofty trees that edged the far side of the ditch, eager to discover what their dense foliage would reveal.” This “wanderer” was none other than

Georges Friedmann

Georges Philippe Friedmann, was a French sociologist and philosopher, known for his influential work on the effects of industrial labor on individuals and his criticisms of the uncontrolled embrace of technological change in twentieth-century Europe and the United States. He was the third president of the International Sociological Association. Friedmann was the last child of Adolphe Friedmann, a Berlin merchant, Elizabeth Nathan, he was born in Paris, where his parents moved after their marriage in Berlin in 1882. They acquired French nationality in 1903. After a brief period studying industrial chemistry, Friedmann prepared for the philosophy agrégation at the prestigious Lycée Henri IV in Paris, he studied philosophy at the École Normale Supérieure from 1923-1926. He served as an assistant to the sociologist Célestin Bouglé at the Centre de documentation sociale, a social science research center at the ENS funded by the banker Albert Kahn and the Rockefeller Foundation. Upon the death of his father in 1929, Friedmann inherited a fortune of 2.6 million francs, which enabled him to finance several of his young classmates' intellectual journals.

Friedmann donated a large part of the fortune to the Fondation Curie for cancer research. After his death, Degas paintings Friedmann had inherited from his father's collection were donated to the Louvre. Friedmann married his first wife, Hania Olszweska, a Polish Catholic, in 1937; the couple had one daughter, born in 1941 in Toulouse. After Hania's death in 1957, Friedmann married Marcelle Rémond in 1960. After taking his family to Toulouse, Friedmann joined the French Resistance during World War II, when he was hunted by the Nazi Gestapo due to his Communist activities, he wrote that he escaped the Gestapo in 1943, was hidden in a school in Dordogne by a pair of young schoolteachers. Friedmann's journals from the war, published posthumously in 1987, recounted his experiences as a member of the resistance, he received his Doctorat d'état in 1946, with his major thesis on mechanization in industrial production and minor thesis on Leibniz and Spinoza, both published as monographs. At the ENS, Friedmann was close to the Philosophies group that opposed the influence of Henri Bergson and was influential in bringing Marx’s earlier philosophical texts to France, included Georges Politzer, Norbert Gutermann, Paul Nizan, Henri Lefebvre.

The group's initial journal and its successor, were funded by Friedmann's personal wealth. During the 1930s, Friedmann made several trips to the Soviet Union, where observed the Soviet industry and technology, his 1938 book, De la Sainte Russie à l’U. R. S. S. Established him as an authority on Soviet society in France, but his moderate criticisms of the U. S. S. R. and Stalin caused bitter conflict with members of the French Communist Party and began Friedmann’s move away from political activism. Friedmann’s doctoral thesis, published after the end of the war in 1946, examined the "human problems" of automation and mechanization European industrial production. A critical, historical overview of paradigms of industrial management scientific management, industrial psychology, human relations, Problèmes humains du machinisme industriel examined social scientists’ efforts to "humanize" industrial labor, fragmented and de-skilled by industrialization and Taylorism. Friedmann argued that while these efforts were an improvement on the "technicist ideology" of management engineering, social science would not lead to significant changes in labor practices without class conflict and the transformation of the capitalist economic system.

Friedmann’s book is considered a founding text of French sociologie du travail, he was influential in the refounding of French sociology after World War II, playing a major role in the foundations of the Centre d'études sociologues and the Institute des Sciences Sociales du Travail. His influential students included Alain Touraine, Michel Crozier, Jean-Daniel Reynaud, Jean-René Tréanton, who conducted some of the first empirical work in industrial sociology in France. Friedmann founded the Centre d'études de communications de masse at the École pratiques des hautes études, whose early participants included Edgar Morin and Roland Barthes. Friedmann continued to travel extensively around the world and publishing on labor practices and industrial models in the United States and South America, his analysis of the nature of the Jewish people and Israeli society in The End of the Jewish People?, one of his few works to be translated into English, attracted media attention in the United States. Friedmann shifted from emphasis on labor to a broader concern with "technical civilization."

His final book, La Puissance et la Sagesse, a mixture of autobiography and reflection on contemporary society, modified his earlier Marxism and emphasized the importance of interiority and morality on humanizing postwar consumer society.
