Treasures from Chatsworth.

“Treasures from Chatsworth,” on view starting Friday at Sotheby’s newly renovated New York galleries, will feature more than 40 masterworks selected to represent the remarkable breadth of the Devonshire Collection — fine art from Rembrandt van Rijn to Lucian Freud, furniture and decorative objects from the 16thcentury to 21st-century design, and exceptional jewels, costumes, and archive materials commemorating historic occasions.

And the next day, The Duke of Devonshire and award-winning creative designer David Korins will visit Guild Hall in East Hampton to discuss it.

Korins, the man behind the set of the hit musical “Hamilton,” transformed Sotheby’s new galleries with five centuries of treasures from Chatsworth House, a transportive experience that brings one of England’s fabled estates — and one of the world’s greatest collections — to New York.

“Among the highlights is one of Leonardo da Vinci’s greatest drawings, which will be on view in the U.S. for the first time in more than 15 years,” according to a press release, “and the historic diamond Devonshire Tiara, worn in weddings since it was created in 1865.”

The discussion begins at 4 p.m. at the East Hampton venue, located at 158 Main Street. Tickets are $15 and $13 for members. For more information, call (631) 324-0806 or guildhall.org.
