The eminent artist, Anna Vaughn Hyatt Huntington, had Gloucester roots and French ties. In 1910 when Huntington first entered a life-sized plaster of Joan of Arc into a Paris Salon competition, she found that some of the judges doubted that she worked without a man’s help. The entry cemented her career and brought her first major commission of an even larger Joan of Arc in New York City. This 1921 cast in Legion Square was dedicated to Gloucester men who fought in WWI. Other monumental casts of Joan of Arc were placed in San Francisco, Quebec, and France.
