Master Drawings Uncovered: Piranesi's Paestum DrawingsFor the first time, Giovanni Battista Piranesi's fifteen highly resolved preparatory drawings of the three great Doric temples in Paestum, Sicily, are shown together in a focused exhibition which considers them as great works of art in their own right, as well as examining how they revolutionised architects' and artists' understanding of early Greek Classical architecture.

 

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.
