Treasures from Chatsworth, Episode 8: The Changing Face of Portraiture

From the earliest days at Chatsworth, the dukes and duchesses have commissioned Britain’s greatest artists to capture their likenesses. Among the most celebrated of these is Thomas Gainsborough’s depiction of Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire. Learn about the famously extravagant Duchess and see an innovative contemporary portrait of Lady Burlington. 

This summer, Sotheby's is honored to present Treasures from Chatsworth – a rare, public exhibition of works from the fabled Devonshire Collection of Chatsworth House. Free of charge and open to the public, Treasures from Chatsworth will be on view from 28 June through 13 September 2019 in Sotheby’s renovated New York galleries, located at 1334 York Avenue.
