Diverse Maniere: Piranesi, Fantasy and ExcessSir John Soane's Museum has one of the richest holdings of graphic work by Italian artist Giovanni Piranesi and this exhibition continues the exploration of Soane's interest in this extraordinary artist. Diverse Maniere will focus upon Piranesi's engagement with the decorative arts. The displays will consist of meticulous three-dimensional realisations of objects, such as coffee pots, chairs, chimneypieces and antique candelabra, tripods and altars imagined by Piranesi but never actually realised physically. Now, using the latest scanning and three-dimensional printing technologies, the Soane has realised Piranesi's vision as a designer. Bronze Tripods, porphyry altars and marble candelabra will embellish the rooms of the museum, while in the gallery a display of Piranesi's related etchings and explication of Factum Arte's work will accompany the show.

 

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.
