    Description

    The Passion of Joan of Arc (L'Alliance Cinematographique Europeenne, 1928). French Double Grande (62.5" X 93.75") Jean A. Mercier Artwork.
    Many consider The Passion of Joan of Arc to be Danish director Carl Theodor Dreyer's finest achievement. With documentary style authenticity, Dreyer recreates Joan of Arc's trial and execution with detailed accuracy, using breathtaking cinematography to convey every emotion. It is because of this rule-breaking cinematography, along with the superb acting, that the film retains its marvelous power today. Dreyer was also able to portray a different side to Joan's "passion," one that was just as erotic as it was spiritual. Jean A. Mercier provides this incredible illustration of Maria Falconetti at her most heart wrenching, an expressive portrait in shimmering silver ink. Still beautiful almost 90 years after is printing, this country of origin poster shows fold wear, mild creases, small tears in the borders, and toning in the borders and folds. Despite being backed on linen, no further restoration efforts have been made. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
