A book documenting Michael Craig-Martin’s installation of twelve new large-scale works in the gardens at Chatsworth House. Each work is an immense, vibrantly colored line drawing in space, fabricated in steel. The book also documents a concurrent exhibition curated by Craig-Martin at Chatsworth House, including sculptures from the Devonshire Collection, in which Craig-Martin has swapped their traditional bases for bright pink plinths, and a visually arresting selection of drawings from the Old Master Drawings Cabinet, including drawings by Hans Holbein, Annibale Carracci, and Ghirlandaio.
