More about Chatsworth House’s Painted Hall
The Painted Hall is a key part of Chatsworth House. It was built when William Cavendish, the 1st Duke, made changes to the house starting in 1687. The hall has special wall paintings done by Louis Laguerre in 1694 showing scenes from Julius Caesar’s life. This room is the main entrance to other grand rooms called the State Apartments. Over time, some changes were made to these rooms, but they were updated in 2010 to look like they did in the past.
