Peace Breaks Out! London and Paris in the summer of 1814The summer of 1814, following the exile of Napoleon to Elba, saw 'the English popping across the Channel like champagne corks released from a bottle, eager to visit a country that had been so long out of bounds,' as one author has put it. The Paris that confronted them was one of marked contrasts between the splendours of its architecture, the metropolitan pleasures that it offered and the destitution of many of its inhabitants caused by two army occupations. Sir John Soane was amongst this group of eager English visitors and was particularly impressed by Napoleon's architectural achievements. The summer of 1814 saw unprecedented celebrations being held across the United Kingdom as peace was declared between Britain and France and also between Britain and the USA. This exhibition, drawing upon Sir John Soanes Museum collections and an extensive private collection, will commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Treaty focusing on this little-know celebration. It will look at the impact that Paris had on its British visitors during the heady summer of 1814 and how that influenced Sir John Soane.

 

About Sir John Soane's Museum

An appealingly higgledy-piggledy treasure trove of artefacts, the extraordinary Sir John Soane's Museum elegantly located on Lincoln's Inn Fields is well worth an exploratory rummage. Lurking in nooks and crannies within the sprawling rooms and halls of neo-classical architect Sir John Soane's former residence are over 30,000 architectural drawings and antiquities.
