History of the monument

An "Impressionist" garden. Clemenceau created his beautifully colourful garden on the dune with the help of his great friend, the Impressionist painter Claude Monet (1840-1926). In 2006, the garden was returned to its original design from information gleaned from correspondence between the two men. 
The retreat of the "Tiger". Georges Clemenceau (1841-1929) first became famous as a journalist when he published Zola’s famous J’accuse in his daily paper L’Aurore. Leader of the Radical Party then senator and French Prime Minister from 1906 to 1909, he returned to power in 1917. The "Father of Victory" rented this house in the region of his birth from 1919, before retiring from political life here.  
A place for meditation and writing. It was here, facing the ocean, that Clemenceau, who was elected by acclamation to the Académie française in 1918, contemplated the events of his remarkable life and wrote several books.
