Sculpture Art: Chatsworth House Damien Hirst
Sotheby’s at Chatsworth House
Last October was on view at the Chatsworth House grounds in the UK. The annual Sotheby’s Beyond Limits sculpture exhibition. This magnificent location has provides a unique opportunity for the presentation and sale of monumental sculpture. The juxtaposition of works by artists as diverse as René Magritte and Takashi Murakami makes this year’s show an exciting destination exhibition for collectors and visitors alike. In addition to works by Lynn Chadwick, Barry Flanagan and William Turnbull. Included in this year’s showing ware two new works from Damien Hirst entitled Legend and Myth, which are his dissected portrayals of a winged horse and a unicorn. This new series of work appears to be an extension of his signature formaldehyde animals, with a focus now on mythical creatures.
Alexander Platon, Sotheby’s Senior Director and Head of Private Sales, Europe, told us: “Sotheby’s is delighted to have offered a spectacular collection of monumental sculptures. a Truly international show, featuring artists from as far afield as Spain, Taiwan, Korea, Argentina and Lebanon. Many works ware being showed at Chatsworth for the first time and visitors had the chance to view Damien Hirst’s remarkable Legend as well as his Myth, ahead of a major retrospective of his work at Tate Modern next year.”
