Many owners were patrons of the arts and commissioned the best artists such as William Orpen, Walter Osborne and Sarah Purser to capture their own or a family member’s likeness. Some portraits are from the early twentieth century when Ireland was experiencing a cultural renaissance and the Irish country house was entering a time of stagnation and decay. Now these portraits capture a way of life that no longer exists and each chapter paints a picture of a bygone age.
