Lines of Beauty: Master Drawings from Chatsworth

The Devonshire collection of Old Master drawings is one of the finest private drawings collections in the world. Spanning 300 years, these unparalleled works represent some of the true masters of their craft, including Carpaccio, Poussin, Rembrandt, Rubens, Van Dyck and more.

Lines of Beauty has been created in partnership with Chatsworth to showcase over 50 highlights from the collection. Amassed by the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Dukes of Devonshire, these drawings were originally reserved for the social elite of the time. Today, the works form part of regular changing public displays at their Chatsworth home, but due to their delicate nature, opportunities to show them together remain limited. This major exhibition, bringing together portraiture, landscapes, classical and religious narratives, is the largest display of the drawings in more than 20 years.
