‘Hell in its Heyday’ presents a new body of work by prominent British-Argentinian contemporary artist Pablo Bronstein created especially for the Sir John Soane Museum in London. A series of large-scale watercolours takes visitors on a tour of hell in a nostalgic and ironic representation of the last two centuries of progress, exploring themes of consumerism, Queer identity, and, prominently, architecture.

Bronstein shares with Sir John Soane an eclectic style in which contemporary and historical references are blended. The publication contains actual-size details from his large-scale, highly-detailed, apocalyptic-vision watercolours, alongside commentary from the artist, and a text from Soane curator Louise Stewart.
