Notes

Record drawing 120 copies two interior perspectives that (it is assumed) were made in the period from June 1794 to February 1795 when Soane and his office were producing a great many designs for the House of Lords committee. Six interior perspectives (drawings 102 to 107) have survived, none of them of the quality of those made a few years later by J. M. Gandy. The same views seen in drawing 120 were later copied by another pupil (see drawings 130, 131). Record drawings 121, 122 and 123 reproduce drawings made by J. M. Gandy, c.1800, for which see Domed designs 47, 53 and 57.

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).
