Chatsworth, Derbyshire, England
Sotheby's Beyond Limits exhibition at historic Chatsworth House in Derbyshire features a spectacular selection of more than 20 monumental sculptures from around the world. From dramatic works by Jaume Plensa, Manolo Valdés, Mario Merz, Juan Muñoz, and Marc Quinn, to a magnificent pavilion by Thomas Heatherwick, Sotheby’s is honoured to present some of the finest contemporary sculpture in one of the world’s most historic garden settings.
This year’s show includes a particularly strong contingent of home-grown artists including Bill Woodrow, Tony Cragg and Allen Jones, who has created a specially commissioned sculpture for this latest edition of Beyond Limits.
Commenting on this year’s line-up for Beyond Limits, Alexander Platon, Sotheby’s Head of Private Sales, Europe said:
This is an exciting time for monumental sculpture. The market for these dramatic outdoor works of art is becoming increasingly global, with buyers from Asia, Russia and the Middle East now collecting in this sphere. There is no better setting in the world than the historic gardens of Chatsworth House, where, this year, we are delighted to showcase a stellar group of works by some of the world’s leading contemporary sculptors.
