Purpose

[63] Design for the interior of Holy Trinity Church, Marylebone, London, 19 October 1824

Aspect

Perspective of the interior of a church looking towards the organ gallery and principal (west) entrance. The view is from the arch with decorated coffering, between the chancel and the nave. The reading desk and pulpit are in the foreground and in front are the free seats in the centre, box pews to the right, and against the right wall are pews looking inwards. To the rear at gallery level is the organ. The gallery has an arcade of arches supported by part-fluted Doric cloumns, with pews looking inwards. Behind are plain arch-topped windows. Between the nave and chancel, again supported by half-fluted Doric columns are two figures, one with a red, the other with a blue coat. The ceiling is flat and compartmentalised, framed with fret, and with rosette decoration within each compartment

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).
