"Is there such a thing a thing as feminine mystique? Georges de Feure, for one, explores that side of the female psyche perhaps more thoroughly than any other posterist. He views his women as enigmatic, often portraying them with sly little smile of private amusement" (Gold p.24)

"An unusual frontal view of the Maid of Orleans, against an umber background, created to advertise a fabric store owned by Astre et Soux in Carcassone."(Rennert, PAI-XXVIII, 306)

"De Feure transforms the saint into a femme fatale: instead of a pure young girl whose armour annihilates all carnal thoughts, we are given a Joan of Arc that emphasizes all her feminine curves" (De Feure p.78)
