Treasure of the week
We will revisit each episode over the next few weeks until we can welcome you back to Chatsworth.
The landscape as a work of art - the Devonshire Collections extend beyond the walls of the house. Throughout the garden and grounds, carefully curated sculptures are thoughtfully integrated with the landscape. Take a tour of the picturesque setting that has been shaped over time by generations of dukes and duchesses in episode seven.
Treasures from Chatsworth: The Exhibition
Highlights from the Devonshire Collection made their way to New York as part of Sotheby's Treasures from Chatsworth: The Exhibition, which was open in 2019 at Sotheby’s New York.
Forty-three masterworks were selected to represent the remarkable breadth of the Devonshire Collection – fine art from Rembrandt van Rijn to Lucian Freud, furniture and decorative objects from the 16th century to 21st-century design, and exceptional jewels, garments, and archival materials commemorating historic occasions will all be on view.
Coinciding with Sotheby’s 275th anniversary, as well as the opening of the expanded and reimagined New York galleries, Treasures from Chatsworth was designed by the award-winning creative director David Korins, whose work includes the set designs for the Broadway musical phenomena Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen, as well as past Sotheby’s exhibitions.
Sharing the Devonshire Collection
Presenting Treasures from Chatsworth in America was a step towards realising our ambition to share the Devonshire Collection with the world and a wonderful opportunity to engage new audiences with the stories of Chatsworth and the work of the Chatsworth House Trust.
