'Architectural Visions of Early Fancy in the Gay Morning of Youth and Dreams in the Evening of Life', by Joseph Michael Gandy, shows a scene of architectural fantasy in which various unexecuted designs by Sir John Soane are gathered in a single landscape.
Soane shared a great collaborative friendship with Joseph Michael Gandy, a draughtsman and architect in his own right who brought Soane’s architectural vision to life through a myriad of grand watercolours. For nearly 40 years the two geniuses supported each other – Gandy as showman, Soane as patron – and Gandy’s theatrical architectural watercolours are certainly one of the highlights of the Museum’s collection.
