His best known love is that of Fréderic Chopin.
The passionate relationship between George Sand, the open-minded French writer and the Polish composer Frédéric Chopin lasted nearly ten years. This is the most enduring relationship in the long series of relationships with famous artists that Sand has contracted. In the writer's biography, the relationship with Chopin meant a period of relative calm. After Sand divorced Baron Dudevant shortly after her marriage, she moved to Paris with her son Maurice in 1831, where she led a bohemian life. The baroness was known for her lack of feminine behaviour: she smoked cigars, wore men's clothes and engaged in romantic relationships with artists. As early as 1832, she had claimed the right to the development of women in the autobiographical romantic novel Indiana
