Death and Memory Exhibition Catalogue

Regular price £12.95

This book of essays, Death and Memory, Soane and the Architecture of Legacy, is published to coincide with an exhibition of the same title (23 October 2015 - 26 March 2016) commemorating the 200th anniversary of Soane's beloved wife Eliza's death on 22 November 1815.

Its relevance to Soane studies is, however , much broader, with essays shedding new light on the architecture of legacy in Sir John Soane's Museum; Soane's preoccupation with memorialisation as revealed in the design process for the Soane family tomb; the legacy of his drawings collection and Soane's attempt shortly before his death to sustain future interest in his collections be creating a series of time capsules.

The essays, written by the curatorial team at Sir John Soane's Museum, are accompanied by thirty-nine illustrations in full colour, some of them published for the first time.
