Silhouette of Sarah Orne Jewett

Whitman created this silhouette of Sarah Orne Jewett. In her volume Little Book of Friends (1916), mutual friend Harriet Spofford said of Jewett’s silhouette, its “lovely, innocent forehead, the delicately arched eyebrow, the finely chiseled nose, the curl of the upper lip, the exquisite corners of the mouth, the oval of the cheek, is a perfect replica even to the turning of an eyelash.”
