Pen and wash on board, image size 61 cm x 50 cm., board size 70 x 60. Signed at bottom right "IN 3 / 85"

A superb drawing, bright and unfaded, from the restoration of this magnificent theatre, executed in 1985 under the ownership of the Really Useful Group. The drawing was in the collection of John Jaques, architect, whose firm was responsible for the restoration, which removed traces of an all-but disastrous remodelling in the early part of the century. The identity of the draftsman is not now known.The detailing of the drawing is superb, incorporating a fanciful rendering of Andrew Lloyd-Webber's initials in the plasterwork above the central door.
