Chatsworth I

St Bartholomew (Exquisite Pain) de Damien Hirst, na capela de Chatsworth.

“The chapel was built between 1688 and 1693 and has remained unaltered ever since. If the 1st Duke could return to Chatsworth he would immediately recognise his creation. Laguerre and Ricard painted the walls and ceilings with scenes from the life of Christ. Verrio painted the picture of Doubting Thomas over the altar. The two large flanking figures were executed by Cibber, the designer of the altarpiece which Samuel Watson and his assistants from London carved of local alabaster.
