Author(s): MUSEUM SIR JOHN SOANES
This collection of 12 sheets of quality standard-size (500 x 700mm) gift wrap features drawings by Robert Adam. Robert Adam (1728 - 92) was one of the most important British architects working in the Neo-classical style. He was a main force in the development of a unified style that extended beyond architecture and interiors to include both the fixed and moveable objects in a room. He incorporated design ideas from ancient Greece and Rome into his forms and decoration. His famous London houses include Kenwood House, Osterley Park and Syon House. In 1883 Sir John Soane purchased 9,000 drawings and watercolours by Robert Adam and his brothers - the richest collection of architectural drawings in Britain and an untapped treasure trove of unique designs for ceilings, carpets, wallpaper and much more.
Robert Adam (3 July 1728 - 3 March 1792) was a Scottish neoclassical architect, interior designer and furniture designer.
