This white marble fireplace, almost severe and minimalist in character, is based on the designs of Sir John Soane (1753–1837). Soane travelled to Italy in the late 18th Century, before returning to establish a highly successful architectural career, working in an increasingly abstract version of the neoclassical style. Among his great buildings were the Bank of England and Dulwich College Art Gallery.
