Details

ST GILES' STREET 1. 1485 (West Side) The Ashmolean Museum and the Taylor Institute SP 5106 NW 5/523A 12.1.54. I 2. Includes No 41 Beaumont street. The combined building housing the Taylor Institution and the original "University Galleries" (now incorporated as the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archeology) occupies the site on the corner of St Giles's Street and Beaumont Street. It was built in 1841-45 to the Neo-Greek designs of Charles Robert Cockerell in Bath (Box Ground) stone on a plinth of Permian sandstone with the columns, pilasters and entablatures of Portland stone and decorations in terra-cotta. The Taylor Institution forming the East wing was founded, built and endowed by Sir Robert Taylor. The Ashmolean Museum, forming the central range and the West wing, has been altered and extended in 1892-5, 1900, 1908, 1923-8, 1933 and 1937-40. The most recent of these extensions (1939-40) giving a farther frontage on Beaumont Street was built in Clipsham stone for the rusticated ground floor, with Bath (Monks Park) stone for the upper storeys, to the design of E. Stanley Hall.
