I have been absolutely mesmerized by Chatsworth House since I can remember and I wanted to share with you a little history about it. Maybe you will like it just as much as me 🙂
Chatsworth House is a stately home in North Derbyshire. It is home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, and has been passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish family. The house architecture and collection have been evolving for five centuries. The house has over 30 rooms to explore, from the magnificent Painted Hall, to the family-used chapel, regal State Rooms, newly restored Sketch Galleries and beautiful Sculpture Gallery. Chatsworth has one of Europe’s most significant art collections. The diverse collection is continually added to, encompassing Old Masters to contemporary ceramics and artefacts from Ancient Egypt, through to cutting edge modern sculpture and computer portraits. In 2012, it will display a selection of Old Master Drawings, including work by Leonardo Da Vinci, Rembrandt and Van Dyck.
