Sarah Orne Jewett House

Stained Glass

Evocative of the Arts and Crafts Movement, this stained-glass floral panel, Yellow Flag Iris, hangs in the large window above the stair landing.

Whitman created the panel as a gift for the Jewett sisters. The frame repeats the rounded arch of the window and the iris; The colors, yellows and greens with violet hint at its being inspired by a Japanese woodblock print.
