The dining room, Fairford Park, Gloucestershire

From the collection
Pen and grey ink and watercolour over traces of pencil with touches of white
There are three drawings (on two sheets) for the eating room at Fairford in the Sir John Soane’s Museum dating from 1789–90 (SM (5) 80/1/65 recto & verso (6) 81/2/99). They aim to remodel the room to make the wall panels more balanced, to use the same cornice as the main stair - case and to remodel the existing chimneypiece.
Medium: Pen and grey ink and watercolour
