Radu Drăgoescu (*17.6.1914 in Paris, † 7.12.1999 in Bucharest) Romanian composer, see wikipedia de. "Radu Drăgoescu was a painter and composed chess problems in all genres, with a predilection for selfmates and helpmates. He wrote many articles for "Buletin Problemistic" and for "Planeta Sah". Valeriu Petrovici and Marian Stere published a book about Radu Drăgoescu's works ("Radu Drăgoescu", 2004) and his family had created a website in his memory. Every year the Romanian Chess Federation offers a "Radu Drăgoescu" trophy, which is a painting by Radu Drăgoescu offered by his daughter Şerbana Drăgoescu."

Since the opening in October 2000, I had published online more than 6650 free chess problems. If you want more details, look at my chess figures pages.
