No house embodies the spirit of one dynasty better than Chatsworth. Set in an unspoilt Derbyshire valley, surrounded by wild moorland, and home to the Cavendish family for more than four hundred years, this treasure house is filled with works of art and objects that have all, in their time, represented the very best of the new. 'Chatsworth, Arcadia, Now' tells the story of this extraordinary house through seven 'scenes' in its life which provide the book's narrative structure; running alongside is a stunning photographic portrait of the house and its collections at this most optimistic point in its history.
