The love for architecture is manifested in the works of the artist Joseph Michael Gandy (1771 to 1843). The British artist and architect was considered a visionary in the field of architecture at the time. Between 1798 and 1809 Gandy was a draughtsman and creative partner of the famous architect Sir John Soane. Soane also taught as professor at the Royal Academy. The Bank of England was one of the most important buildings in which he participated as an architect. Joseph Michael Gandy thus worked with one of the most influential and famous architects of his time. All the more surprising is the fact that Gandy was absolutely no career man. In his environment he was considered a difficult and stubborn person.

A lighthouse project during his creative period was the design of the office building of the London Phoenix Fire and Pelican Life Insurance in the years 1804 and 1805. unfortunately, the building of the British insurance company was almost completely destroyed around 1920. Two other successful projects of the arquitect Gandys were the design and construction of the Doric House in Sion Hill in Bath in the year 1818 and in the 1820s the rebuilding of the Swerford Park House in Oxfordshire. Despite his talent and his unique perspective on architecture and art, Joseph Michael Gandy was not commercially successful in his day. At times he had to spend some time in a debtor's prison. Critical approaches and ways of thinking were firmly anchored in his architectural and artistic work. This is how Joseph Michael Gandy attained popularity and fame already during his lifetime. Gandy recorded his thoughts on architecture and architectural theory in his texts. In 1821 he published two articles in the renowned Magazine of Fine Arts. He dealt intensively with the philosophy of architecture. Originally Gandy planned to publish an eight-volume work entitled "Art, Philosophy and Science of Architecture". This did not come about, but the unpublished manuscript for the book project has been preserved to this day.

It is not surprising that the pictures reflect Gandys passion for architecture and perspective. Architectural precision and the often dramatic two-point perspective are essential unique selling points of his paintings. A glance at the works of Ghandy also reveals his fascination with Roman architecture and ruins. The artist shared this passion with his former companion John Soane. Literary and mythological themes are skilfully incorporated into his paintings and lend the works of art a historical and sometimes magical aura. The choice of colours and richness of detail make Gandys paintings appear sublime. The painting technique and choice of colours in his works are not very reminiscent of the well-known and successful British artists William Turner and John Martin. In 1839 the architect and artist died in a medical institution in Plymouth. There he was previously accommodated by his family. In the Sir John Soane Museum of London, those who are interested can view the unique works of the artist. © Meisterdrucke
