Art lovers in Britain have a rare opportunity to see works by some great masters that have not been on display for more than a century.
Twelve drawings by the likes of Da Vinci, Titian, Rembrandt, and Rubens are on display at Chatsworth House, the seat of the Duke of Devonshire.
Most of the works have been in the family’s private collection since the 1700s, but were put into storage in 1906 to minimize damage from light and the environment.
The Devonshire collection includes some 3,000 works. They will be rotated in the exhibition through November.
