Eustis Estate


Sarah Wyman Whitman was not only a successful painter and book cover designer, but also fulfilled important commissions in stained glass. Her windows can be found in Boston’s Trinity Church; Harvard University’s Memorial Hall; Berwick Academy in South Berwick, Maine; and Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. She made this fire screen as a wedding gift to Richard Norton, son of her friend Professor Charles Eliot Norton. Antonio Mancini’s portrait of Richard Norton appears in this gallery.
