Joseph Michael Gandy (1771 - 1843)
Composition: A Mountain City
Museum number: XP13
Although this watercolour was amongst items passed down through the family of John Soane junior before it came to the Museum in 1930 it seems certain that it is by Joseph Michael Gandy, in whose office Soane junior worked very briefly. It has been identified by the Gandy scholar Professor Brian Lukacher as Bridge and Palace in the Platxenses [exhibited at the Royal Academy under Gandy's name in 1817, No. 903 Bridge, etc., Platxenses].
Given to the Museum by a descendant of Harriet Soane, daughter of John Soane junior.
Joseph Gandy: Visionary Architect, Richard L. Feigen & Co., New York, 25 April - 22 July 2006
Presented by Mrs Besant, 1930
