This cartoon is for the left part of one of the two main stained glass windows in the chancel apse of Hillhead Church, Glasgow. Below that scene in the window are two angels holding a scroll, and another appearing in the tracery above. The window is entered in Burne-Jones's account book in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge under September 1892: 'Window for Hill Head. #100.' It was made by Morris & Co. and erected in memory of Robert Donaldson, a Glasgwegian iron merchant, in 1893 (A.C. Sewter, The Stained Glass of William Morris and his Circle, 1974-5, I, pl. 612; II, p. 80).
The cartoon for the companion subject seems to be lost, but those for the figures of the angels holding a scroll are reproduced in Aymer Vallance, The Decorative Art of Sir Edward Burne-Jones , Master Art Annual, 1900, p. 9, as in the collection of Harold Rathbone. The two designs representing Christ blessing children were often re-used by the Morris firm at later dates, some of these versions appeared in churches in Birmingham, Eastbourne, Liverpool, Nottingham, Bermuda and elsewhere.
