This window was revealed at St.Bartholomew’s by the HRH Prince of Wales. The window itself was commissioned by Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught in 1916. This piece is located in Ontario Canada. The window is a memorial piece, depicting images of mourning men and women. Geddes uses primitive colours in her Ottawa Window, most prominent of the colours used are yellow and black. It is said by a critic that the colours used in this piece “give the window power and drama while strong, expressive drawing brings out the sense of action and facial expression.” An article in Irish Life featured the window on the cover of its Christmas tree in 1919. The writer of the article considered this window to be ‘one of the artistic triumphs of this century’. Geddes completed the entire window in Miss Pursor’s glass works, Upper Pembroke Street in Dublin, Ireland.
