Stories: Juliet Thompson

Juliet Thompson, American Bahá’í, painter, and disciple of `Abdu’l-Bahá, was perhaps best remembered for her book The Diary of Juliet Thompson though she also painted a life-sized portrait of `Abdu’l-Bahá.

 

Of the portrait, `Abdu’l-Bahá said”I want you to paint my servitude to God.”
