Purpose

[50] Finished drawing for the organ, St Peter's, Walworth, London, 16 February 1824

Aspect

Plan of the organ at the bottom with the towers at the front. Elevation of the organ with a step leading to the console area with a cornice above. On top is the pipe arrangement of flats and the towers. The pipes are partially exposed within the casement. The flats rest on a semi-circular and segmented base, and are secured at the top behind a series of suspended arches with pine-cone finials on the bottom. The towers rest on protruding bases from the cornice below, and are capped by pipe shades in the form of a scrolled pediment with pinecone finial. Between the towers is a band of Vitruvian scrollwork and above the flats at each end is a band. The central pediment is scrolled with a more elaborate finial in the centre. Each end has a pine-cone cap. Above is an arch, and an arc in hatched lines crosses the organ at pipe level

Sir John Soane's collection includes some 30,000 architectural, design and topographical drawings which is a very important resource for scholars worldwide. His was the first architect’s collection to attempt to preserve the best in design for the architectural profession in the future, and it did so by assembling as exemplars surviving drawings by great Renaissance masters and by the leading architects in Britain in the 17th and 18th centuries and his near contemporaries such as Sir William Chambers, Robert Adam and George Dance the Younger. These drawings sit side by side with 9,000 drawings in Soane’s own hand or those of the pupils in his office, covering his early work as a student, his time in Italy and the drawings produced in the course of his architectural practice from 1780 until the 1830s.

Browse (via the vertical menu to the left) and search results for Drawings include a mixture of Concise catalogue records – drawn from an outline list of the collection – and fuller records where drawings have been catalogued in more detail (an ongoing process).
