This cushion showcases one of the most ingenious compositions of Vermeer’s late career.  In Woman Writing a Letter, with her Maid by Johannes Vermeer, while a maidservant stares out of a window, her mistress writes a letter.  This oil on canvas was painted circa 1670/71 by Dutch artist Johannas Vermeer and was donated by Russborough House's Lady Milltown to the National Gallery of Ireland where it can be viewed today. This work is seen as a bridge between the quiet restraint and self-containment of Vermeer's earlier work of the 1660's and his relatively cooler work of the 1670s.

Inspired by Russborough's world-famous art, this collection of cushions mean you can now add a touch of artistic elegance and new conversation to your home:  During the ten-year build of Russborough, Joseph Leeson, later 1st Earl of Milltown, undertook two Grand Tours to Italy. The purpose was to collect art and acquire sophistication and taste for his new residence. Throughout his life Sir Alfred Beit was also a keen collector of 18th and 19th century art as well as his inherited collection of old master paintings. 

These extraordinary collections of paintings were donated to the National Gallery of Ireland by Lady Geraldine Milltown in 1902 and by Sir Alfred and Lady Clementine in 1987.  Soft to the touch and with eco-fibre filling these eye-catching cushions are sure to add new conversation to any home.
