Stoker Devonshire and his wife, Amanda, have been collectors for the last 40 years. Since they moved to Chatsworth in 2006, they have commissioned many works of both fine art and design and developed the exhibitions program extensively. Having spent the past 11 years overseeing a program of restoration and modernization within the house, they are now working on long-term projects within the garden.
Chatsworth has one of Europe’s most significant art collections. The diverse collections have grown with each generation. Today, Chatsworth contains works of art that span 4,000 years, from ancient Roman and Egyptian sculpture, and masterpieces by Rembrandt, Reynolds and van Dyck, to work by outstanding modern artists including Lucian Freud, Edmund de Waal and David Nash.
