CHATSWORTH

Chatsworth, known as ‘The Palace of the Peak’, is the Derbyshire home of the Cavendish family, the Dukes of Devonshire, and has often been selected as Britain’s favourite country house. Chatsworth boasts one of the greatest private art collections in the world which contains treasures acquired by the Family from the 16th century to the present day. The Devonshire Collection includes views of the house, garden and park throughout the ages as well as portraits of the Cavendish family, imposingly depicted by the grandest artists of the day including Sir Anthony van Dyck, Pompeo Batoni and John Singer Sargent. The images within the collection are key to showing aristocratic tastes of the last few centuries and include pastoral English scenes by Samuel Palmer, exotic lands visited on the Grand Tour and costume designs by Inigo Jones.
