Purpose

[53] Record drawing of design for anti room

Aspect

Interior perspective

Signed and dated

June 1800

Medium and dimensions

Pen, burnt Sienna, red and yellow washes, shaded on laid paper (369 x 231)

Hand

Joseph Michael Gandy (1771 - 1843)

Notes

The drawing is a simpler version of Gandy's interior perspective of the same subject (see drawing [52]). Volume 69 (of which this drawing is page 66) forms a collection of (label) ' Sketches by J. Gandy / of Buildings designed by / Sir John Soane R.A. / and from which Sketches / Fair drawings were subsequently / made between 1798 and 1800'. So clearly this was a preparatory drawing to the final drawing that took fourteen and a half days to make.

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.
