The Crucifixion of Jesus Christ

Window of one round headed light.

This window depicts the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. At his feet are four mourners, the Virgin Mary and Mary Magdalene being the most obvious.

Douglas Strachan (1875-1950) was born in Aberdeen and educated at Robert Gordon’s College. Strachan took evening classes at Gray’s School of Art. He worked as an apprentice lithographer, a muralist, a portrait painter and then found his passion for Stained Glass as he worked on a commission in the early 20th century. Strachan’s first major design was for the Peace Palace in The Hague installed in 1929. He worked on many memorial windows, including the renowned designs for the Scottish National War Memorial at Edinburgh Castle, from 1923-1927.
