Meeting George Sand

End of October, 1836. In the salon of Marie d'Agoult and Ferenc Liszt in Hôtel de France, at the address rue Laffitte 23 in Paris Chopin for the first time met Amantine-Aurore-Lucile Dupin, baroness Dudevant that is George Sand. Several days later, on November 5, the writer was invited by Chopin to a music soiree. 

George Sand and Fryderyk Chopin started their romantic relationship in April, 1838. At that time George Sand sent a short note to Fryderyk Chopin with the confession “On vous adore”. Chopin kept it to the end of his life. On November 8, 1838, until February 13, 1839, they were together on Majorca, and during 1839 – 1846 (except for 1840), during summer months, Chopin travelled to the mansion in Nohant. Since 1839, in Paris, they lived in apartments located close to each other. They split up in July 1847, mainly due to the conflict between George Sand and her Daughter Solange, Chopin supported the latter one. Their last, accidental meeting took place on March 4, 1848.
