Exhibition of Masterpieces

Seen together for the first time in two decades, works by Rembrandt, van Dyck and Poussin are amongst 59 old master drawings now on display in a fabulous new exhibition called Lines of Beauty

Many of these drawings are considered masterpieces and are amongst the highlights of Chatsworth’s 1800 strong collection, second only to the Queen’s. Chatsworth has loaned the drawings to Sheffield’s Millennium Gallery and we organised an exclusive media preview ahead of the official opening.

Working with the international news agency AFP, the BBC and regional media, the morning press call included exclusive photography, interviews with art experts, one-to-one briefings with curators and a tour of the exhibition. 

And our team even took on modelling duties, posing as art enthusiasts enjoying the masterpieces on display! 

The press call was just one part of a much longer campaign that secured widespread coverage in publications such as The Guardian, Sunday Times, Daily Mail, The Art Newspaper, Sheffield Star, Yorkshire Post and many more.

If you have any interest in art then don’t miss Lines of Beauty, it runs until 25 May at Sheffield’s Millennium Gallery. But, if you can’t make it, you an always drop in at Chatsworth itself from 21 March for a display of 10 drawings by Raphael as it celebrates the artist’s work 500 years after his death.
