The 2019 exhibition has been launched by The Duke and Duchess of Devonshire at the stately home in Derbyshire this week.

'The Dog: A Celebration', is the expression of love from Amanda Cavendish, 75, the wife of the 12th Duke of Devonshire, Peregrine Cavendish, 74. It explores the Cavendish family’s enduring admiration for dogs, through paintings, drawings, sculpture, letters, photographs and contemporary art.
