[reserved] JOANNA D'ARC, H. Moreau, bronze, 2nd half of the 19th century 19th century

Joan of Arc - the national heroine of the French is shown in an extremely pathetic way. The saint is standing on a rock, holding a raised sword in one hand and holding a banner with French lilies in the other. The sculpture presents an idealistic vision - neither Joanna's face nor Joanna's outfit bear any signs of the hardships of war.
