This stunning volume provides an enchanting visit to one of the most storied and beautiful English country houses.

 

No place embodies the spirit of the English country house better than Chatsworth. From best-selling books such as Georgiana: Duchess of Devonshireand Chatsworth: The House by Deborah Mitford, the late Dowager Duchess of Devonshire, American audiences have long been transfixed by this remarkable place and its extraordinary collection of art and decorative objects.

 

Today, Chatsworth's facade is newly cleaned and its windows freshly gilded. The forward-looking current Duke of Devonshire, who likes to say that "everything was new once," has redone the public and private rooms. This tour-de-force volume is his telling of the story of Chatsworth through seven historical periods accompanied by stunning photo-graphic portraits of the house, its collections, and the grounds.

 

Chatsworth contains countless treasures from Nicolas Poussin's Et in Arcadia Ego and Antonio Canova's Endymion to seminal modern works by Lucian Freud and David Hockney. Though filled with works from different time periods, the collection represents the very best of the "new" from each artistic era.
