Details

From the Grand Tour of the 2nd Earl in the company of his tutor, the famous philosopher Thomas Hobbes, to Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire’s exile on the continent, ‘A Grand Tour of the Devonshire Collection’ looks at what they saw, where they went – and what they and their contemporaries bought.
The exhibition will also demonstrate the impact of the Grand Tour at home through the introduction of new ideas and styles of art and architecture. This includes the overthrow of Baroque by Palladianism, triggered by the travels of Inigo Jones and later, the 3rd Earl of Burlington (father-in-law of the future 4th Duke of Devonshire).
As part of ‘A Grand Tour of the Devonshire Collection’, the Old Master Drawings Cabinet hosts displays of artists’ impressions of what Grand Tourists saw on their travels. This will start with ‘Rome in Ruins’ – an evocative collection of drawings by Sebastian Vrancx, previously unseen at Chatsworth.
