The Mausolea & Monuments Trust

Frances Sands

Prior to working at Sir John Soane's Museum, Fran Sands studied for a PhD at the University of York.  Her thesis comprised a monographic study and architectural drawings catalogue, exploring the eighteenth-century construction history of Nostell Priory, Wakefield.  Since this time she has also been a trustee of the York Georgian Society.  Her main research interest lies in eighteenth-century architectural drawings, and at the Soane Museum she is responsible for attributing and cataloguing the 8,000-strong drawings collection from the office of Robert and James Adam.  This includes designs for at least 32 identified, and numerous unidentified projects for monuments and mausolea.
