Listen to the Story: 10 minutes
Who is this young person kneeling before a crowd of one-percenters? Meet Joan of Arc, one very tough teen. She’s here to convince the exiled French court that she can save France from the British. No wonder they look skeptical!
And just like Sodoma, we get to discover another artist, Louis Maurice Boutet de Monvel. He painted a series of six images about Joan’s life for Senator William A. Clark that formerly hung in the Corcoran Gallery in Washington DC.
