two model panelsTwo model panels, Handmaid of the Lord and Madonna of Sorrows, now belong to the Boston Public Library. The very rough designs that Sargent sketched on these panels, using dilute oil paint on wood, do not bear much resemblance to the final murals. The model for Madonna of Sorrows was cut down along the lower edge.
