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

Gillian Ayres was the first great English female abstract artist, and is widely acknowledged as one of Britain’s foremost abstract painters. Born in 1930, Ayres studied at Camberwell College of Art between 1945 and 1950 and worked initially in London and then to Cornwall where she currently lives.
Ayres’ first solo exhibition was at Gallery One in 1956, and her work has featured in many key group shows since, including the Whitechapel Art Gallery's seminal British Painting in the 60s in 1965. She was elected a Royal Academician in 1991 and in the Queen’s 2011 Birthday Honours List, she was awarded a CBE for services to the arts.
