The greatness that is Chatsworth

In Art and history, Travels and events by Roger Thomas

I found these photos of a visit to the stately home last year, reminding me that all great homes are as good as their smallest details. I love the opportunity to capture elements from a lower vantage point, a seated view, which explores the home from a more intentional vantage point.

Greatness abounds at Chatsworth, this extraordinary stately Home, seat of the Duke of Devonshire and the Cavendish Family. It is not only the quality of the treasures it houses, but the richness of their juxtapositions. Colour, texture, silhouette, and history layered in the most sublime combinations.
