Sitter in 1 portrait
Joseph Michael Gandy was an artist, architect and architectural theorist, most noted for his imaginative paintings depicting Sir John Soane's architectural designs. He worked extensively with Soane both as draughtsman and creative partner from 1798 until 1809 when he set up his own architectural practice. Gandy never truly succeeded in establishing his own practice; his best-known buildings were the Phoenix Fire and Pelican Life Insurance Offices, London, and Doric House, Sion Hill, Bath.
