Joan of Arc Pin
Frequently bought together:
Joan of Arc led the French to victory during the Hundred Years’ War (1337–1453). She became a potent symbol in the 1870s as France recovered from another war. Sculptor Emmanuel Frémiet’s portrayal of the heroine mounted on horseback contrasts sharply with Rodin’s monument to her, on view nearby.
A version of Frémiet’s statue came to Philadelphia in 1890 when it was purchased by the Fairmount Park Art Association (now the Association for Public Art) on behalf of the city’s French community. You can see it on Kelly Drive near the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
