Scenes from the Life of Joan of Arc
Illustrations by Kay Nielsen
The attribution for these powerful images to a suite designed for an unpublished version of The Monk of Fife is drawn from
the references appearing in Christmas editions of The Illustrated London News.
Within the plate, the images are signed by Kay Nielsen and dated 1914. Accompanying the title for two of the images, there
is a relevant quote from Lang's The Monk of Fife. Each of the images is presented in an integrated mille fleur border in the
manner adopted by Nielsen some ten years later for his illustrations to Fairy Tales by Hans Andersen.
Our Greeting Cards and Reproduction Images
For connoisseurs of Nielsen's work, we have prepared sets of 3 Greeting Cards displaying colour images from his images from "Scenes from the Life of Joan of Arc" and on the left, we show an example of how these Greeting Cards appear.
When presented on Greeting Cards, these images are prepared as tipped-on plates - in hommage to the hand-crafted
approach typical of prestige illustrated publications produced in the early decades of the 20th Century. Each card is
hand-finished and the images are presented on Ivory card stock with an accompanying envelope. The rear of each
card carries information about Kay Nielsen, this wonderful suite and the profiled illustration - we have left the interior
of the cards blank so that you may write your own personal message.
Our large format reproduction prints are produced with a process utilising archival quality materials to ensure may
years of enjoyment. In addition, each these large format print is also accompanied by information about Kay Nielsen,
this suite and the profiled illustration.
