Jeanne D’Arc

Jeanne d’Arc was a peasant girl who, believing that she was acting under divine guidance, led the French army in a momentous victory at Orléans, in 1429, that repulsed an English attempt to conquer France during the Hundred Years’ War.

In this portrait, Jeanne’s youth is evident in her soft features. With simple adornments of her tangled hair she strives to achieve a measure of femininity in the grim existence in the French line.
