These Winged Horse paintings are inspired by a trip to Powerscourt Estate, Co Wicklow, Ireland. One of the most striking features of the Italian Gardens within the estate is the pair of life sized Winged Horses which watch over Triton lake. They are made of zinc and form part of the family coat of arms. They were created by Professor Hugo Hagen in Berlin in 1869. The fountain in this dramatic lake is based on the fountain in the Piazza Barberini in Rome.
