*BRING A FRIEND FOR 110!
The AFA is pleased to offer a tour of Treasures from Chatsworth: The Exhibition at Sotheby’s.
Chatsworth House, in the United Kingdom, is home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, and has been passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish family. The house is renowned for the quality of its art, landscape and hospitality, and has evolved through the centuries to reflect the tastes, passions and interests of succeeding generations, standing today among the most important stately homes in the UK. Rich with thousands of objects, the Devonshire Collection represents a grand tradition of collecting spanning half a millennium, and is widely celebrated as one of the most significant collections of art and objects in Europe.
The exhibition will feature forty-five masterworks selected to represent the remarkable breadth of the Devonshire Collection – fine art from Rembrandt van Rijn to Lucian Freud, furniture and decorative objects from the 16th century to 21st-century design, and exceptional jewels, garments, and archival materials commemorating historic occasions.
*In honor of the AFA’s 110th anniversary, we are offering our members the opportunity to bring a friend to select AFA member events free of charge. Take advantage and RSVP for two!
