The searing, abstract vision of the New World comes to Chatsworth this autumn as the Beyond Limits monumental sculpture exhibition stages a display of works from the foremost artists of post-war America.
This is the first prominent open-air exhibition of post-war American sculpture in the UK and will feature more than 20 sculptures carefully positioned around Chatsworth’s renowned 105-acre garden.
Highlights include works by Robert Indiana (One Through Zero pictured), Julian Schnabel and Louise Nevelson with each sculpture taking full advantage of the views found in this beautiful landscape.
Other artists on display are: David Smith, Wendell Castle, Isamu Noguchi, Richard Serra, Sol LeWitt, Mark di Suvero, George Rickey, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, Tony Smith, Robert Morris, Beverly Pepper, Joel Shapiro, and Sam Francis.
For more than 15 years the Chatsworth House Trust and the Devonshire family has continued to purchase and commission contemporary sculpture for public display.
Works by Michael Craig Martin, Dame Elisabeth Frink, Angela Conner, Barry Flanagan, David Nash, Laura Ellen Bacon, Gary Breeze and Allen Jones can be found throughout the garden and park.
Curated by Sotheby’s, the sculptures in Beyond Limits will be on display from 11am-5.30pm until November 12 and the exhibition is included with admission to the garden.
