Sir JOHN SOANE’S MUSEUM

Sir John Soane (1753-1837) architect and collector, left his house and museum to the nation. In his lifetime Sir John - whose works included the Bank of England and the Dulwich Picture Library - amassed a collection of architectural drawings as well as classical and medieval works of art, artefacts, sculptures, paintings (including works by Canaletto, Hogarth and Turner) and other items. His house has astonishing interiors and was used almost as a laboratory for his ideas.
