Biography Marie-Antoinette Demagnez
Marie-Antoinette Demagnez (1869-1925) executed an important World War I Memorial in 1919 located in France at Languedoc-Roussillon, Gard, Saint-Chaptes, in the Town Hall Square. It is made of stone, concrete and iron. It depicts a woman draped and crowned with laurel raising a palm with a soldier nearby standing guard. Engraved on the bas-relief are the names of those soldiers from this town that gave their lives for France in the WW I. The concrete portion was edited by Coignet of Paris. A plaque indicating the dead from this town in WW II was added sometime after that war ended in 1945.
