Second stair landing window

Praying Angel

This window is a circular single panel, 35” in diameter. It depicts the bust of an angel, her hands folded before her, looking upward. The model was Mary Whitney, John La Farge’s long-time mistress and one of his favorite models until 1892, when she left New York.
