There is a rich history of patronage at Chatsworth, which is filled with works commissioned directly from artists of their time, be it the early 19th century or the early 21st. This episode explores the relationship of trust between the artist and their commissioner, highlighting Jacob van der Beugel’s 2014 DNA Wall and Antonio Canova’s The Sleeping Endymion, made almost exactly 200 years earlier.
