Curator Tour: Picturing Childhood

Join a guided tour of Picturing Childhood led by exhibition curator Gill Hart. Includes admission to the house, garden and farmyard.


18th September 2024 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Join our tour of Picturing Childhood with exhibition curator and Head of Learning and Engagement Gill Hart.

From the Tudor era to the present day, Picturing Childhood celebrates the universal experience of childhood while questioning long-held ideas about what it was like to be a child in the past.

In this 90-minute tour of the exhibition, you will explore representations of children by renowned artists such as Van Dyck, Raphael, and Reynolds.

Throughout the house, we’ll consider contemporary responses to childhood and curiosity.

This is a small group tour with plenty of opportunities to ask questions along the route and find out more about this year’s exhibition.

This event includes admission to Chatsworth House and Garden so you may explore at your own pace throughout the day. Access to the Farmyard is also included. A hot drinks voucher for Flora’s or Park Café will be provided.
