|Commentary:|| On June 7, 1949 Schoonover signed a contract to design a stained glass window for St. James Church in Newport, Delaware. The subject for the window was given to him by Rev. Alex W. Boyer, Rector of St. James, Newport, Delaware, early in 1949. The text is St. Luke 24:13 and 28, ‘Supper at Emmaus.’
The artist finished the first cartoon, in early August, but after a visit from Willet, the maker of the window, decided to create a second version of the cartoon which was used for the window. See #2441w for the completed window, and #2440. Other sketches for this second design are available in the Schoonover Collection, Helen Farr Sloan Library, Delaware Art Museum, Wilmington, Delaware.
