Notes

30 Differs hardly at all from an earlier drawing for twin lodges (8) also by Baldwin, datable to May 1784. The pencil additions of a tree, base mouldings, finials to gate piers and the surprising suggestion for a rectangular hood-mould over a round-arched window within a round-headed blind arch were presumably added by Soane. The plan of the kitchen garden remains 180 feet by 360 feet as in drawing 9 though the larger side is transverse rather than longitudinal and part of the stable court now projects into the garden.

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).
