Drawing is of Sir Galahad, the son of Sir Lancelot, kneeling with rays of sun shining upon him as he holds his sword in one hand and rests the other hand across his heart. This design likely captures the moment when Galahad achieved the Holy Grail.
"1909" -- hidden inside design along bottom left; perhaps the date when the design was created.
Various celtic knots and coats of arms border the design.
"Sir Galahad" -- written in black ink on verso.
"The Judson Studios" -- written in pencil along top left corner on verso; a Judson Studios label is affixed to bottom right corner of verso.
According to The Camelot Project at the University of Rochester, "stained glass windows depicting Galahad were often created (from roughly 1900 to 1930) to memorialize the deaths of young men, especially young men killed during the war".
According to Diane Wright, Master of Fine Arts, this design was drawn by Frederick Wilson (d. 1932). It was made into a finished window and installed in Garrett Memorial Chapel, Penn Yan, NY.
Displayed in the exhibition titled "Drawings for American stained glass" held at the Rakow Research Library from May 17-December 31, 2010.
An embossed, rectangular border surrounds the design.
