To mark the tercentenary of the birth of Thomas Chippendale, Harewood House displays its holdings of the Yorkshire-born cabinetmaker’s work. Taking the form of a trail through the house and grounds, the exhibition will explore Chippendale’s craftsmanship and activity at Harewood, celebrating his talent as a designer and maker of furniture as well as his wider role as a decorator. The exhibition includes a mirrored display of the Diana and Minerva Commode, widely considered to be Chippendale’s masterpiece, as well as a contemporary response to Chippendale by artist Geraldine Pilgrim, who will create an installation for the grounds of Harewood House and a further display for the House’s Terrace Gallery. Find out more about the ‘Thomas Chippendale’ exhibition from Harewood House’s website.
