Sir John Soane’s architecture has enjoyed a revival of interest over the last seventy years, yet Soane as a collector – the strategy behind and motivation for Soane’s bequest to the nation – has remained largely unexplored. While Soane referred to the display of objects in his house and museum as ‘studies for my own mind’, he never explained what he meant by this, and the ambiguity surrounding his motivation remains perennially fascinating. Bruce Boucher will examine key strands in Soane’s collection and what they reveal about the man and the psychology of collecting.

The talk starts at 6.30pm, doors open from 6.15pm.
