For Season 1 of The Grand Tour at Nottingham Contemporary Pablo Bronstein chose 62 works of fine and decorative art to bring to Nottingham Contemporary's galleries – Chatsworth’s largest UK loan for 30 years.

Works by Rembrandt and Franz Hals, Delft porcelain, the coronation chairs for William IV and Queen Adelaide, and a colossal Roman marble foot were amongst the objects that appeared within and alongside work by Pablo Bronstein.

Unusually for a contemporary artist, Bronstein's work is fascinated by pre-20th century European design and architecture. The overwhelming theatricality of the Baroque, is a particular favourite, and it’s a period that Chatsworth and much of its collection epitomises. Bronstein’s erudite drawings, performances, furniture and public art relate to both the past and the present in unsettlingly paradoxical, sometime humorous ways.

This edition was created on the occasion of Pablo Bronstein's 2015 exhibition 'The treasures of Chatsworth House - Grand Tour season 1'. The work is signed and numbered by the artist.

About Pablo Bronstein

“I sometimes see myself as a sort of architectural provocateur,” says Pablo Bronstein, referring to his explorations of the history, influence, and aesthetics of architecture. With an eye for beauty and the absurd, he mashes up different architectural structures and styles into imaginative and often impossible new forms, which he presents in drawings, sculptures, installations, performances, and publications. Bronstein concentrates on drawings in particular, working in various combinations of ink, pencil, gouache, and watercolor to create detailed, delicate, and confounding compositions. His cross section of a building composed of nested structures highlights the evolution and history of architectural styles. Bronstein brings a sense of humor to all of his projects. “My work is pretty much always characterized by being visibly ridiculous in one way or another,” he has said.
