Description

Lantern slide of an interior in Newman House, Co. Dublin. Originally catalogued with labels "No 85. Stephen's Green. Saloon. Ceres 1740" and "D3XI" and "51." Depicts a close-up view of an interior ceiling in No. 85, Newman House. The stucco design shows Ceres and another figure sitting on a cloud, with rococo style borders, garlands and cherubs around them. Ceres, an ancient Roman deity, was the the goddess of agriculture and grain crops, and is shown holding a bundle of grain. The figure beside her, holding floral foliage, is unidentified, but may be Proserpina (Persephone) a goddess of vegetation and Cere's daughter. Newman House was the original location of the Catholic University of Ireland, and was named for Dr. John Henry Newman who was rector of the university. The University was founded in 1854 and was the precursor of University College Dublin.
