Luigi Laguerre – The Life of Julius Caesar

On the University trip to Chatsworth House, we each chose an object – a sculpture, piece of clothing, painting etc – to base a poster off. I chose the ceiling fresco in the Painted Hall at Chatsworth House, as it represented everything I imagine when I think of Duchesses, royalty and the rich.

I spent the whole trip admiring the gilt frames, ceiling roses and mouldings and gold leaf detail in the house. The gates into the house being especially intricate, caught my eye and made me think of the baroque period. Walking into the house, the Painted Hall is one of the first rooms the visitors are welcomed into, the sheer decadence of the hall is impressive and overwhelming. That feeling of luxury and excess is what I wanted to capture within this post.
