The trustees and staff of Sir John Soane’s Museum have been deeply saddened to learn of the recent and unexpected death of Museum Trustee Stephen Gosztony.

Stephen’s judgement, wise counsel, and generosity towards the Soane leaves a strong impression on us all. His advice since joining the Board in early 2020 has been crucial, especially in how we dealt with the problems brought on by the pandemic and its aftermath.

Like many other institutions with which Stephen was associated, we mourn the loss of a great friend and supporter, and our thoughts are with his family.
