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

Product story

The painter and printmaker Craigie Aitchison CBE RA (1926–2009) is best-known for his spare compositions and intense, luminous palette. His subject-matter is equally distinctive – single flowers, Bedlington terriers, sheep and crucifixions – rendered, as in the Italian religious icons that he so admired, in simple but powerful forms. These hallmarks are readily present in Aitchison’s prints, most of which are the legacy of his longstanding relationship
with the technicians at Advanced Graphics, London.

Andrew Lambirth is art critic for The Spectator. His many books include Nigel Hall: Sculpture and Works on Paper (2008) and Barbara Rae: Prints (2010), both published by the Royal Academy of Arts.
