Old Master Drawings Cabinet – Conflict in Art
Considered the greatest historic family collection outside the Royal Collection, the Devonshire Collection of Old Master Drawings includes more than 3000 works from both the Italian and Northern Schools. The Old Master Drawings Cabinet is a purpose-built space in which we can display selections from our collection. The Cabinet provides the necessary environmental conditions for these masterpieces, and also recreates the effect of a historic collector's cabinet.
This exhibition features a selection of Old Master Drawings to complement 'Chatsworth in wartime', this exhibition includes scenes of historic and mythological battles with works by Raphael, Van Dyck & Mantegna's famous engraving 'Battle of the Sea-Gods'.
