In Situ at Chatsworth
Extraordinary sculpture in an extraordinary setting.
In situ at its best.
This would be the perfect moment to stroll the gardens of Chatsworth,
in Derbyshire UK. The Duke and Dutchess of Devonshire are hosting
Beyond Limits, a Sotheby's auction of monumental sculpture , with
30 pieces displayed on the grounds of their ancestral home
.. . through November 1.
I adore the contrast of the contemporary art displayed against
the backdrop of this historical setting.
Do take time to go HERE and see additional pieces, as well as hear
Simon Stock, of Sotheby's, interview the Duke. To learn more
about the artists and the featured pieces, there's also an excellent
article at the online art magazine -theartwolf.com .
As you may know, Chatsworth has several lovely cottages available to let.
Swiss Cottage is usually my favorite -- - quite remote, with it's own private
lake. But, I'm feeling more inclined to stay at the 16th C. Hunting Tower for
this visit. Great vistas overlooking the enchanting Capability Brown park.
Should you decide to join me ... . . I'll be the one strolling with
a parasol and a large white Borzoi.
