The Sabine Room

The Duchess didn’t like the Sabine Room, hence her invitation to Freud to cheer up the bathroom. But it’s quite a magnificent piece of baroque painting by Thornhill, before he embarked on the decoration of the Painted Hall at Greenwich:-


One thought on “The Sabine Room

  1. Although I knew and stayed at Chatsworth in the 1960s, I never saw the Sabine Room, for obvious reasons. Both the Duke and the Duchess were great patrons, and collectors, of the Art, and the present Duke, as Chairman of Sotheby’s, has continued that. As has his son, William, who was on the RA Committee which oversaw the conversion of Burlington Gardens.
