Woman Gazing at Angels by Owen Bonawit
G. Owen Bonawit (1891–1971) was an artist whose studio created thousands of pieces of stained glass for Yale, Duke, Northwestern, and Connecticut College, and private homes. There are, by one count, 887 pieces in Yale's Sterling Memorial Library. His career peaked around 1930; his last major commission was in 1940, according to the Wikipedia.
He was the son of a commercial illustrator in Brooklyn. His uncle was noted stained glass artist Owen J. Bowen, an associate of Louis Tiffany, John LaFarge and Otto Heinigke. Bonawit went into business for himself in 1918 and by 1930 employed 15 craftsmen. In 1941 Bonawit closed his shop and moved to the Southwest. There, he launched a successful career as a technical photographer. Bonawit is best known for his secular work, especially in libraries at Yale and Northwestern. See the Connecticut College Website
