More than half a century of British artistic achievement will be on display for the tenth anniversary of the monumental sculpture exhibition Beyond Limits, which opened at Chatsworth this week.
Titled Beyond Limits: The Landscape of British Sculpture 1950-2015, the exhibition runs October 25, and is the biggest staged to date by Sotheby’s at Chatsworth.
Guest curated by Tim Marlow, the director of artistic programmes at The Royal Academy of Arts, the exhibition will feature more than 30 monumental sculptures woven into the landscape of the famous garden at Chatsworth, home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire.
Beyond Limits will consider the breadth and international impact of some of the best sculpture by Britain’s leading artists of the past 65 years.
Highlights include Barbara Hepworth’s Three Obliques (Walk-In), Anthony Caro’s Sunshine and Lynn Chadwick’s Pair of Walking Figures – Jubilee alongside works by Antony Gormley and Philip King.
Tim Marlow commented: “Combining a selection of some of the most exciting and important monumental sculpture with the extraordinarily beautiful garden at Chatsworth, we’ve been able to curate an exhibition that not only responds to the growing interest in outdoor sculpture, but also explores and celebrates the rise and rise of British sculpture.
Exhibits will be on display from 11am-6pm every day at no extra charge beyond normal garden admission. See www.chatsworth.org
