The colony was an artistic community involved in the Arts and Crafts movement and began operating in 1902. This image depicts Wherry, looking directly into camera, in front of an apple tree. She holds one of the apples in her hand, at the center of chest, where her off-shoulder dress comes to a point at the breastbone. She wears a crown of branches and leaves in her hair, which is loosely tied back and parted in the middle.Physical Description
