Since 1910, Anna Vaughn Hyatt Huntington created versions of the Joan of Arc on horseback sculpture. In 1915, she was the first woman to receive a public commission in New York City for a bronze version of the sculpture. Later, the City of Gloucester requested a commission for the same sculpture, which would be unveiled in 1921.
