Overview of Chatsworth and the exhibition:
Chatsworth House is renowned for the quality of its art, landscape and hospitality. Home of the Cavendish family since the 1550s, the house has evolved through the centuries to reflect the tastes, passions and interests of succeeding generations. Today Chatsworth contains works of art that span 4000 years, from ancient Roman and Egyptian sculpture, and masterpieces by Rembrandt, Reynolds and Veronese, to work by outstanding modern artists, including Lucian Freud, Edmund de Waal and David Nash. The 105 acre Chatsworth Garden is famous for its rich history, historic and modern waterworks and sculptures, the Victorian rock garden and the maze. Younger visitors also enjoy the farmyard and adventure playground and the 1000 acre park is open every day. Each year we host a number of special events including the Horse Trials, Country Fair and Christmas market; and from November the house is transformed for Christmas. In addition to our busy events programme, we host a number of special exhibitions included with your admission, in addition to the headline exhibition, every Autumn we play host to the Sotheby’s Beyond Limits sculpture exhibition in the garden, as well as our rolling programme of showcasing Old Master Drawings which will continue through the year. Furthermore, with several restaurants and shops, including Britain’s best farm shop, you can really make the most of your time with us.
In 2017, our headline exhibition and most ambitious to date is House Style: Five Centuries of Fashion at Chatsworth. Layering art history, fashion, jewellery, archival material, design and textiles, the exhibition is organised by theme. Highlights include exceptional couture designed by Jean Phillipe Worth and Christian Dior, together with influential contemporary garments from designers such as Gucci, Helmut Lang, Margiela, Vivienne Westwood, Erdem, Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane and Vetements.
The show also features personal family collections, including items belonging to the current Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. These pieces are displayed alongside livery, uniforms, coronation robes and fancy-dress costumes, demonstrating the varying breadth of fashion and adornment from the Devonshire Collection throughout the generations. Important artworks are also on display, including rare costume designs from the early 17th century by Inigo Jones, Surveyor to the King’s Works and one of the most notable architects of 17th century England.
