Sarah Orne Jewett House

Landscape at Cortina

On a trip to Europe in 1894, Whitman wrote to Annie Fields, “…I am haunted by the “sensations d’Italie,” and a dream from which perhaps one never awakes.”

This oil painting, Landscape at Cortina, was a gift to Sarah Orne Jewett and sister Mary Rice Jewett. It hangs over the mantel in Sarah’s room.
