Illustrated with a full-page photo of the sculpture "France Aroused", the attached article tells the story of this magnificent work, at it's creator: the American artist Jo Davidson (1883 1952). This remarkable creation by Davidson, a colossal depiction of France as an outraged warrior queen, was intended for the French village of Senlis to serve as a memorial to that remarkable day in September, 1914, when the German drive on Paris was stopped cold, and pushed back. It was at Senlis where the earlier successes of the German Army were reversed.

In 1919, Jo Davidson would endeavor to create a number of busts depicting the various entente statesmen who participated in the Peace Treaty.
