UPDATE


Online Shopping: closed now, back soon

The safety of our visitors, friends and all who work with us at the RA is our highest priority. In line with the advice from Public Health England, the RA is closed temporarily; we have now taken the further decision to close our online shop in the short term, and to minimise non-essential activity.

We will be in touch once online shopping is available again, and are using the opportunity to improve the site and online experience we offer: we promise it will be better than ever! Meanwhile, if you have a query about an existing order, please contact us.

Whilst the front doors of the RA are closed, and for the time being the online shop, we will continue to offer creative inspiration to enjoy from home, and new ways of connecting. Visit us at Royal Academy of Arts, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

Sign up to receive RA emails and find out once the online shop is open.

Thank you for your continued support. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back to the online shop and in person again soon.

Wishing you all the very best,
The Royal Academy of Arts Team

Anne Desmet RA

Anne Desmet RA uses traditional printmaking techniques such as wood engraving and lino cutting to depict the evolution of the urban landscape. 

Artist profile

Anne Desmet RA followed her studies at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, University of Oxford and London’s Central School of Art and Design with a scholarship award at the British School at Rome in 1989. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers and a Member of the Society of Wood Engravers.

Desmet depicts the evolution of the urban landscape through collage and print, looking at the aspirations and experiences of humanity, with a particular focus on Italy, London and the Babel Tower.

Her work is made using traditional printmaking techniques and ranges from small scale, detailed examinations to sweeping, often fantastical, panoramas viewed from a bird’s eye perspective.
