Details

2018 marks 300 years since the birth of Yorkshire-born Thomas Chippendale, one of Britain’s most eminent interior designers and cabinet makers.

To celebrate this significant anniversary, the gallery is working with one of the finest treasure houses in the North of England, Nostell Priory, a National Trust house with over 100 pieces of Chippendale furniture. The role of artists in influencing interiors will be explored through key loans from both collections and special commissions by contemporary artists.

Visitors will see modern and contemporary artworks in Nostell’s historic rooms and the most fashionable furniture of the 18th century within the 21st-century gallery spaces of The Hepworth Wakefield.
