Imaginative reconstruction drawing made by J.M.Gandy, 1800


19 Perspective set in a landscape with mountains and trees after Soane's amended design of 1777

Medium and dimensions



J.M.Gandy (1771-1843)




Close to the preparatory perspectives made by Gandy (drawings 17-18) though with the addition of five figures in Roman costume. Still in its original handsome frame, it is possible that Soane contemplated exhibiting it at the Royal Academy but he did not do so and the design for 'A sepulchral church' that he exhibited in 1801 relates to Tyringham Hall.

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.
