Past Exhibition: Soane: Connoisseur & Collector

Soane: Connoisseur & Collector, A Selection of Drawings from Sir John Soane’s Collection
April 30, 1996 to July 7, 1996
Painting of design and construction of church

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.
