Product story

RA SCHOOLS 250 Anniversary Portfolio

2019 marks the 250th Anniversary of the RA Schools

The RA Schools has been a key part of the Royal Academy since its foundation in 1769. This portfolio celebrates the RA Schools within the history of the Royal Academy and its impact as a leading and independent Fine Art school.

This portfolio of 30 prints features artists who have a deep connection to the RA Schools. Throughout 2019, the contributing Royal Academicians and RA Schools Professors - Academic staff and graduates - have made these prints alongside current students. The portfolio demonstrates the range and breadth of artistic approach and the multi-generational voices that contribute to the RA Schools creative evolution.

All of the works have been created and editioned in the EPSON digital print workshops at the RA Schools using the latest in archival inkjet printing technologies with the help of generous sponsorship from long standing supporters EPSON UK and EUROPE. For some of these artists digital print is a new medium, whereas other contributors have practices that are defined by their long-term commitment to digital image making.
