JOAN OF ARC
Norman Lindsay - Joan of Arc woodblock


 
NORMAN LINDSAY
Joan of Arc
8.8 x 10.8 cm
Printed from the original woodblock by Josef Lebovic in 1995

In 1920 Hugh McCrae began writing his long poem about the French peasant maid who became Joan of Arc. Although McCrae never completed the poem, Art in Australia published the first three parts.

This wood engraving is a powerful representation of Joan's vision as described by McCrae in Art in Australia, Eleventh Number, 1921. In her vision Joan saw lightning 'like flame-struck arrows' strike a tree and, chained to the tree in a blaze of 'pure white fire', was a phantom knight. The knight was maidenly and young 'with honey-coloured ringlets hung'. Joan's vision was to be her fate.

Joan of Arc was originally printed in 1920.
