Anna Vaughn Hyatt Huntington. "Joan of Arc Monument"
Famous equestrian and animal sculptor Anna Vaughn Hyatt Huntington created one of the most famous Joan of Arc statues. Huntington had created a smaller model for an exhibition at the Paris Salon and won a medal for her model. The Joan of Arc Statue Committee, who was a group of New Yorkers, saw the model whilst in Paris and four years later commissioned her to build this remarkable statue that would change her life. The statue had been replicated in her native Gloucester, Massachusetts as well as Quebece, Canada and Blois, France.
