St. Luke's Episcopal Church

detail of a window by Whipple Studios of London, UK. These windows were designed/painted to be the same format as the other Heaton, Butler, and Bayne clerestory windows. This includes an architectural 'canopy', multiple flower clusters at the base, and clouds in the background. However, this one example excepted, the Whipple windows figures are stiff, anatomically unatualistic, and badly painted. They are passable, but by being the same format as the exquisite and vastly superior H,B&B windows nearby, they invite comparison.
