Robert McCausland, Toronto
This spectacular window is based on a painting by the American artist Frederic Remington (1861-1909.) Removed from a Winnipeg mansion scheduled for demolition, the window is now at The Manitoba Museum.
Stained glass studios of the 19th and early 20th centuries would often "borrow" the design of a favourite painting by a famous artist at the request of a well-to-do client.
