Photo 14 Saint Therese of Lisieux
Description:
Photo n° 14

Photograph taken by Céline, taken in the sacristy court yard like photos 11-13. Thérèse was still dressed as Joan of Arc, taking on the attributes of the character she played in her own play, Joan of Arc, January 21, 1895. Once retouched by Céline, Thérèse would use it along with the preceding photo to create her holy card n° 2 Joan of Arc in her prison.

This same retouched photo that we can see here would be sent by Thérèse to Diana Vaughan and projected by Léo Taxil during his press conference of April 19th, 1897 in the Geography Society in Paris, the conference where he revealed that his character of Diana Vaughan was fictitious.

Date: between January 21st and March 25th, 1895.
