Jeanne d’Arc

See original.

The statue in Blois by Anna Hyatt-Huntington (1921) was a gift from an avowed Francophile, on behalf of the US people and the citizens of New York. The setting of this replica is much better than that of the original in New York, where it is barely possible to get enough distance to be able to enjoy this beautiful and powerful sculpture, due to the many trees surrounding it. In the pedestal of the Blois statue there is a stone from the prison in Rouen where Jeanne d’Arc was held in captivity.
