150 miles north of London, in the stately Chatsworth House of Derbyshire, lies one of the most significant collections of art and objects in Europe. The famed Devonshire collection has been passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish Family and encompasses the rarest fine art, design, and jewelry from the past five centuries. This summer, Sotheby's is honored to present Treasures from Chatsworth – a unique public exhibition of works from this incredible collection. In this video, the 12th Duke of Devonshire provides a preview of the extraordinary objects coming to Sotheby’s New York. From Rembrandt van Rijn to Lucian Freud, forty-five masterworks from the Devonshire Collection will be exhibited in a multi-floor installation designed by creative director David Korrins, whose work includes the set designs for the Broadway musical phenomena Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen. Free of charge and open to the public, Treasures from Chatsworth will be on view from 29 June through 18 September 2019 in Sotheby’s newly expanded and reimagined New York galleries, located at 1334 York Avenue.
