Description

In 1877, in homage to George Sand (1804-1876), the Town Council decided to erect a statue in a public garden named after the writer. The statue was conceived in Carrara marble by Aimé Millet and, during a grand celebration on 10th August 1884, was unveiled in the presence of Ferdinand de Lesseps (creator of the Suez Canal who lived in the region), Maurice Sand (son of George Sand), Paul Meurice (friend of Victor Hugo and George Sand). In 1890, two sequoias were planted in her honour. Thus, the town paid tribute to the authoress who once said : I have described La Châtre, and have been critical because deep down I love it.
