About this artwork

Childerly Chapel was commissioned by the Crane family for their estate in Wheeling, Illinois, and was completed in 1926. Although the architect of the chapel is unknown, the interiors were finished with painting and sculpture by André Derain and Alfeo Faggi. This album of eleven mounted black-and-white photographs depicts the chapel, Derain’s painting Last Supper of 1911 and Faggi’s sculpture Holy Child, two standing sculptures of St. Francis, and his well-known Stations of the Cross.
