Life Stories

2nd July 2020 - 4th October 2020

Real people revealed in portraits and objects. Explore this exhibition with a House & garden or House, garden & farmyard ticket.

This exhibition will share stories about the fascinating lives of people associated with Chatsworth through the placement of selected portraits and objects. Focusing on the traces of lives in the house, the exhibition presents objects in new ways, demonstrating how past figures continue to resonate in our lives today.

Throughout the house, we will share the stories of family members, servants, friends, and artists, as we invite our visitors to join us in thinking and looking at portraits, people, and the objects that they lived with, and which accompany us all into the present.
