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

Sarah Pickstone was commissioned by the Royal Academy, to make a work responding to the life of RA founder member Angelica Kauffman. This culminated in two large paintings: The Rainbow and Belvedere 2018, which can be seen in Burlington House until August 2019.  Pickstone’s work often celebrates women’s literary and art history. In 2012 she won the prestigious John Moores Painting Prize, having been runner up in 2004. Her work is held in significant public and private collections and she shows internationally.  Born in Manchester, Pickstone studied at Newcastle University and the Royal Academy Schools 1988- 1991. She won the Rome painting prize 1991-2 and her stay in Italy made a big impact on her work. Pickstone sees teaching as an important part of her practice and she is a visiting tutor to several London art colleges and a member of Senior faculty at the Royal Drawing School. She lives and works in London.
