Catalogue Note

This painting depicts the chapel that occupies the south-west courtyard at the Derbyshire house of Haddon Hall near Bakewell, the seat of the Manners family. Blacklock painted another view of Haddon Hall in 1848 depicting a man and woman at the foot of the steps at the terrace. Blacklock's work is rare and The Chapel at Haddon Hall is the earliest picture by the artist to have been offered at auction in recent history. Although Blacklock had no direct contact with the members of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood his paintings have a similar attention to detail and intensity of clarity.
