An exhibition of some fifty architectural drawings, highlights of the renowned collection of 30,000 works housed in Sir John Soane's Museum in London. The exhibition included works by Italian Renaissance masters; leading British architects of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries (among them Sir Christopher Wren and Nicholas Hawksmoor); near contemporaries of Soane such as Sir William Chambers, Robert Adam, and George Dance the Younger; and the master himself. The drawings were virtually unknown to the public, and they had never before been exhibited outside England.
