Presented originally at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the exhibit focused not only on the historical Joan of Arc but on the manner in which Joan was characterized or portrayed through time: a bold warrior, a pious maiden, a fashionable courtier, a loyal subject, a condemned prisoner.

Co-curated by Laura Coyle and Nora Heimann, the exhibit presented more than 200 works, including paintings, sculpture, prints, illustrated books, posters, medallions and decorative art.
