The Treasury House of Chatsworth House, which once served as the estate of the Dukes of Devonshire, again hosts a major exhibition Beyond Limits from September 14 to October 25, in which, over the past few years, perhaps all important sculptors of the 20th and 21st centuries have taken part. Damien Hirst, Mark Quinn, Jaume Plensa, Manolo Valdez and Thomas Heatherwick are just a few of the artists who made a mark in the history of this event. In its anniversary edition, the Chatsworth House buildings and the adjacent garden will again become the exhibition area. This time, Sotheby's has brought select sculptures from 1950 to 2015 to Derbyshire. For example, those created by the iconic abstract sculptor Barbara Hepworth. Her works Sea Form from 1964, The Family of Man: Figure I, Ancestor I from 1970 and Three Obliques from 1969, like many others,can be purchased for personal collection.
It is also worth going to Chatsworth House for the work Pair of Walking Figures (1977) by Lynn Chadwick, another leading British abstract sculptor, as well as Held by Desire by Mark Quinn, Sunshine Anthony Caro, Kevin Sarah Lucas and many other works for which the entourage handpicked by Tim Marlowe, director of art programs at the Royal Academy of Arts and guest curator of the exhibition. Simon Stock, Senior Director of Impressionist and Modern Art at Sotheby's, is convinced that the lush landscapes of the luxurious English estate add a special intonation to each sculpture.
