A STRIKING new work called Legend by controversial artist Damien Hirst is one of the key pieces in a new sculpture exhibition to go on show in the gardens of Chatsworth House from Friday.

Beyond Limits is a contemporary sculpture exhibition featuring a painted bronze, winged horse cast earlier this year and standing at more than 10ft high.

Showing in public for the first time, Legend joins 25 other sculptures from 20 British and international artists and includes new pieces as well as others not previously seen in the UK.

Chatsworth’s famous gardens and the surrounding Peak District landscape provide a dramatic backdrop for the large-scale works with the biggest, Manolo Valdes Nike, measuring just under 50ft across.

The British presence includes Marc Quinn, Yorkshire artist Richard Hudson, Barry Flanagan and Lynn Chadwick.

European and American artists include Rene Magritte, Jaume Plensa, and Jedd Novatt while a strong Asian influence includes works from Takashi Murakami, Yayoi Kusama, Ji Yong-Ho and Ju Ming.

Free sculpture tours are available to visitors at 11.30am and 2.30pm every day until the Beyond Limits closes on October 30.
