Sir John Soane (1753 - 1837)
Fragment of an ornament in an antique frieze
Museum number: P348
If this beautiful and delicate drawing is indeed in Soane's own hand, as the 1837 inventories of the Museum assert, then it is a beautiful example of his very high standard of draughtsmanship and probably dates from his time as a student drawing from casts in the Royal Academy schools in the 1770s.
