Birthday George Sand 1 July 1804

Amantine Lucile Aurore Dupin, best known by her pseudonym George Sand, was a remarkable woman – a prodigious novelist, dramatist and campaigner for all manner of political reform. She had a releationship with Frédéric Chopin for almost 10 years. And today is her birthday.
This photograph of her could also have been taken in the 60’s of the 20th century. Looking forward to ‘crawl into her skin’ again in the next performance of ‘Chopin and George Sand’, after summer in Gent.

  1. the earliest known surviving photograph that includes people was taken in 1838 by Louis Daguerre. Aurore was not in it, but if she was she would have been 34 years old. Nadar certainly took portraits of her in 1864, but by then she was middle aged. I like your site, however, as I am a fan of George Sand, and, especially, Chopin.

    1. Hi Bill, I have a performance about George Sand and Chopin. But it is in Dutch! Otherwise I would invite you to come over and watch it. Even this coming Sunday I will perform it in Almere at 3 pm.
