Close in the method of presentation and drawn to half the same scale as another drawing ( see Verona: Church of San Bernardino, Pellegrini mortuary chapel), and on the same watermarked paper and also pricked for transfer, the drawings seem to be related and may be copies from the same source.

Designed by Sanmicheli in 1559 (the year of his death), the pilgrimage church of the Madonna di Campagna (Maria di Campagna) is located three miles south-east from the centre of Verona. It has a circular plan enclosing an octagon, and is circled by a low Tuscan colonnade supporting a lean-to roof. The cylindrical body of the church supports a drum and dome, and is approached through a portal and antechamber.

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).
