British sculptor, draughtsman and traveller. Studied at the Royal Academy, awarded a scholarship allowing him to continue his studies in Rome, 1823. Travelled throughout Egypt, Palestine and Syria, with extended periods spent living in Egypt between 1824 and 1844, during which time he created a large portfolio of drawings and watercolours. Worked for Robert Hay, James Burton, Edward W. Lane, Sir John Gardner Wilkinson, and Ippolito Rosellini. Was a member of Lepsius's expedition to Egypt between 1842 and 1844. Bonomi assisted Owen Jones, the architect responsible for the design and installation of the Egyptian court, Crystal Palace, 1853. Appointed Curator of the Sir John Soane’s Museum in 1861, a position he held until his death in 1878.

Instrumentos de descripción

1) Bonomi drawings and paintings:

  • list and notes for the Egyptian portfolios by Dr Rosalind L. B. Moss (some of the references in the list are quoted in the published Topographical Bibliography volumes as well as being recorded in this catalogue as 'PM reference'). In the period of time between Dr Moss consulting the material and its accession in the Archive, distribution of some of the material has been changed and relocated within other folders by the former owner. There were also periodic exchanges of material between the respective collections in the possession of Bonomi's other descendants, hence some of the items seen and recorded by Dr Moss are no longer present [info Mrs Vivien Betti in 1997],
  • preliminary catalogue for the Egyptian, European et al. and Near Eastern portfolios [Bonomi MSS 1-32],
  • final catalogue of the entire collection in progress on this website.
    2) Typescript of extracts from Bonomi’s diary: none.
