a bronze sculpture for the city of Méru, France
by sculptor Laury Dizengremel
Inaugurated in 1985

My portrait of Jean Jaurès being inaugurated by President Francois Mitterrand

President Mitterrand inaugurating in February 1985  the bust of Jean Jaurès which I was commissioned to create by the (then) Deputé de l'Oise, Mr. Guy Vadepied.

Monsieur le President de la Republique

Arriving at the reception after the inauguration - Laury Dizengremel (right) towing behind President Mitterrand (center)...

"I listened as Mr. Vadepied explained to the President who I was.... Then the President turned, grabbed my hand for the respectful  and very French baise-main and asked in his deep voice 'So it is to you, Madame, we owe this beautiful bust of Jaures?'  to which I replied in the affirmative and that was that! Afterwards, lunch, lots of wine for all of us and for me also a memorable and lively conversation with Charles Hernu (then Minister of Defence). I look back at this image of my young face and marvel at  the opportunities in which commissioned artists interact with people of power, and the unique chance I was given way back then."
