At the Seaside, William Merritt Chase, Rectangular Pillow
This 20 x 12 inch pillow is made from fabric custom-printed with At the Seaside, an 1892 oil painting by William Merritt Chase. For over a decade, Chase taught open-air art classes at a resort on the beaches of Shinnecock, Long Island.
The design is the same on both sides of the pillow.
To make the pillow, the design is printed onto special paper, and then transferred using heat and pressure to become part of the fabric. This sublimation process creates a soft, breathable, vibrantly colored material.
The fabric is pre-shrunk polyester — soft and durable, with a moisture-resistant coating. The pillowcase is machine washable, with a concealed zipper. The resilient polyester filling insert retains its shape, and can be washed by hand. Made in USA.
