Catholic Imagery

“Of Sharon’s works from the Menil Collection, Joan of Arc reflects her admiration of the 17 year old girl burned at the stake,  whom the church waited 500 years to declare a saint. A gift of the Kienholzes, Joan of Arc was a work Dominque de Menil greatly admired. She also acquired Catherine’s wheel, thus personally picking Kopriva for the select group of Texas artists found in the museum’s collection. Clearly both the Christian and spiritual qualities in Sharon’s art touched Dominque de Menil."
