This drawing, one of set of three, takes a view from the gardens at the centre of Lincoln's Inn Fields towards the museum, made up of numbers 12, 13 and 14. Soane proudly announced his presence in the square with the extraordinary addition to the front of number 13, a creation in stone over three floors complete with casts of ancient architectural details. This was originally an open loggia but was later subsumed into the rooms behind. The other two drawings in the set include a view of the Breakfast Room at number 13, and a detail of a curved mirror.
The image is c.175x125mm and is produced with the highest-quality archival inks on a textured archival fine art paper to convey all the qualities of the original drawing.
David lives and works in Cambridge, England, where he is, first and foremost, a practicing architect. He has always had a fascination with Architecture and this inevitably translates into a desire to observe, record and analyse buildings and cities in all their beauty and richness. Whether at home in Cambridge or travelling, he is usually to be found with a camera and sketchbook close to hand, collecting ideas for both buildings and drawings. In addition to recording particular architectural and urban moments discovered while walking around cities, some of his prints present drawings of his own designs, made while studying architecture. Whether the buildings they portray exist or are only imagined his drawings and photographs tend to focus on the relationship between architecture and the city or on particular details that have caught his attention. David's full range of prints can be viewed and purchased at acbdprints.co.uk.
