Joan of Arc, c1880. Nineteenth century representation of the 15th century French patriot and martyr St Joan (1412-1431), before the Dauphin, later Charles VII, at Chinon in 1429. Legend has it that Joan recognised the Dauphin although he was in disguise and this was taken as a sign that she was divinely guided. During the Hundred Years' War between England and France (1337-1453), Joan led resistance to the English. In 1430 she was captured by the Burgundians and sold to the English who passed her to the ecclesiastical court of the Inquisition at Rouen. She was tried for heresy and sorcery and burnt at the stake on 30 May 1431. (Colorised black and white print).
This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.
