George Sand
George Sand (1804–1876) was a French novelist and memoirist who penned such books as Un hiver à Majorque (1842) , La Mare au Diable (1846), and La Petite Fadette (1849). Known as an ardent supporter of the poor and working class, as well as women's rights, she caused controversy in French high society for wearing men's clothing and smoking in public. She was also known for her much publicized romantic affairs with a number of artists, including the composer and pianist Frédéric Chopin.Photograph: Nadar
