Bust of Sir Thomas Lawrence
Museum number: M695
This is a cast of Soane Museum object H7, presumably made for Soane so that he could display it in the Dome Area at the back of his museum (the original being in the Entrance Hall). The placing of Lawrence, his recently deceased friend and fellow Royal Academician (President of the RA at the time of his death), so prominently in two locations in his house shows in what high regard Soane held both Sir Thomas and the Academy.
