About Baron Von Mandelbrot
While the Baron's artistic interests are relatively well documented, little is known for certain about the enigmatic figure. While currently residing in the wilds of Surrey in England, the Baron is not a native of that part of the world. Most accounts of his provenance pin him down as a native of Mandel Elass Reichsland; a remote and mountainous parcel of land that occupies the once disputed territories between Grossherzogtum Baden, Liechtenstein, and Carniola (now modern day Italy). Which, by some quirk of fate, has retained its independence all through the territorial jostling within Europe over the last 300 years.
