This years Beyond Limits, Sotheby’s selling exhibition, held in the historic grounds of Chatsworth, ancestral seat of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire and one of Europe’s greatest private houses takes place 8 September to 23 October. The 22 sculptures selected for this year’s show include works by established modern masters such as Aristide Maillol, Eduardo Chillida, Germaine Richier and Giacomo Manzù in addition to leading contemporary artists such as Marc Quinn, Christopher Le Brun, Lawrence Holofcener and Michal Rovner, as well as China’s celebrated Xu Bing.
Now in its ninth year, Beyond Limits has firmly established itself as one of the most prestigious platforms for the display and sale of modern and contemporary outdoor sculpture
and a key event in the arts calendar. The exhibition opens to the public on 8th September and will run until 26th October 2014.
Sotheby’s Simon Stock, curator of the exhibition, said: “This year’s Beyond Limits is remarkable both in terms of the range of major works and the unprecedented way in which we’ve been able to display them, allowing for exciting new dialogues with both the buildings and the landscape at Chatsworth. Sotheby’s has been staging exhibitions here for nine years now, and yet every year, each new group of works interacts with this extraordinary location in a host of new and unexpected ways.”
