Inspired by Russborough's world-famous art, our collection of cushions mean you can now add a touch of artistic elegance and conversation pieces to your own home. This cushion is from 'Antonia Zarate' by Francisco Goya (Spanish, b. 1746, d.1828). The original artwork was donated by Alfred and Clementine Beit to the National Gallery:
Russborough House has been home to renowned art collections established by the 1st Earl of Milltown in the 18th century and Alfred Beit in the 19th. During the ten-year build of Russborough House in the late 18th century, 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 where they can all be viewed today.
With eco-fibre filling and soft to the touch these cushions are sure to be a stylish addition to your home.
