Chippendale Revealed: an online exhibition for everyone, everywhere
The National Trust is very fortunate in caring for one of the best surviving collections of Chippendale’s work at Nostell Priory, near Wakefield in Yorkshire, not very far from where Chippendale lived as a child and adolescent. In this festival year, the Trust’s Furniture Research & Cataloguing team embarked upon a project to reveal some of Nostell’s treasures, commissioning new photography to record hidden aspects of this remarkable collection. Chippendale Revealed, a permanent online exhibition, is the result of two week-long photographic shoots in the house in March and April 2018. Where possible, Chippendale’s furniture at Nostell has been re-photographed in a studio setting. The result is a detailed and intimate record of some of the output from Chippendale's workshop, which we hope will interest and delight enthusiasts and scholars alike.
