Gift of Willet Stained Glass Studio
Web Description: 
William Willet (American, 1867-1921) studied with the well-known American painter William Merritt Chase and worked as a designer for the famous stained glass-maker John La Farge (American, 1835-1910) before establishing his own studio. Assisted by his wife, Anne Lee, Willet worked in a neo-Gothic style that incorporated Pre-Raphaelite motifs. These stylistic motifs were inspired by 19th-century paintings and stained glass by British artists such as Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Edward Burne-Jones.
