Francois Felix Faure (1841-1899) division 4 Pere-Lachaise

The seemingly peaceful figure of Felix Faure, president of France from 1895 until his death in 1899, belies the turmoil of the last years of his life which saw his administration embroiled in the notorious Dreyfus Affair. Sculpture by Rene de Saint-Marceaux (1845-1915).
