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 were all 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.
