Artist's Description

The Breakers is a Vanderbilt mansion located on Ochre Point Avenue, Newport, Rhode Island, United States on the Atlantic Ocean. It is a National Historic Landmark. No cameras or photography is allowed inside the Breakers on the mansion tour, EXCEPT when you step out onto the balcony and onto the patios. The minute I saw this ceiling I was enthralled. It is painted to create a 3D effect as you can see.

The Breakers was built as the Newport summer home of Cornelius Vanderbilt II, a member of the wealthy United States Vanderbilt family. The home was constructed between 1893 and 1895 at a cost of more than $12 million (approximately $316 million in today’s dollars adjusted for inflation).
