We have just received some images from an event last year that we thought we’d share on the website as it was such an extraordinary venue! PAIAM (Professional Advisors to the International Art Market) asked us to cater a networking event in Sir John Soane’s Museum in September of 2011 for 80 of their guests. We served some our favourite canapes with great care of course, especially when surrounded with such beautiful pieces of art and history.
This really is a great venue in central London for an event, and indeed a day out.
John Soane was born in 1753, the son of a bricklayer, and died after a long and distinguished career, in 1837. Soane designed this house to live in, but also as a setting for his antiquities and his works of art. After the death of his wife (1815), he lived here alone, constantly adding to and rearranging his collections. Having been deeply disappointed by the conduct of his two sons, one of whom survived him, he determined to establish the house as a museum to which ‘amateurs and students’ should have access.
