Chatsworth: The Complete Work of Art
with Clive Aslet
On Wednesday, July 24, The ICAA hosted Clive Aslet, noted writer, commentator, historian, novelist, editor, and lecturer, for a talk about the iconic art collection at Chatsworth House.
In his talk, Aslet explored the diversity of artworks that have been collected at Chatsworth over the years, including paintings from Rembrandt and Lucian Freud, modern ceramics, ancient sculptures, minuscule cameos, expansive gardens, and more. Aslet also looks at the personalities responsible for curating and maintaining the artworks through the generations, and the mark that each left on the collection as a whole. The lecture can now be viewed here in its entirety.
This was the second lecture in the ICAA’s 2019 New York Summer Series in partnership with Sotheby’s, designed to coincide with Treasures from Chatsworth, an exhibition of one of the largest and most significant private art collections in Britain.
