DescriptionGeorge Berthoy Cutts - Original Interior Book Art (c. 1925).
Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc, by Mark Twain (Harpers & Brothers 1926). Illustration caption: "A frantic man in priest's garb tore through the crowd and flung himself on his knees, crying out, 'O forgive, forgive!'" Originally published in 1896 under the pseudonym Louis de Conte, the book meant a great deal to Samuel Clemens, who felt it would not be taken seriously if attributed to his Mark Twain pseudonym. It was reprinted in 1926 with the Twain name and illustrations by George Cutts.
Oil on canvas, approximately 30 x 23. Signed lower right.
A copy of the reprinted 1926 book is included.
