This ground-breaking documentary is the only one of its kind to date and it features the fascinating life of sculptress Fèlicie de Fauveau, against the suggestive backdrop of nineteenth-century Florence. The program takes art lovers into Santa Maria del Carmine’s ancient cloister to witness the Advancing Women Artists Foundation’s painstaking restoration of De Fauveau’s Monument to Anne de la Pierre, damaged during the Nazi occupation of Florence and the devastating flood that swept through the city in 1966. In Santa Croce’s loggia, watch expert conservationists as they bestow new dignity upon the artist’s crowning achievement—a marble tomb commemorating West Indian poet, Louise de Favreau.
