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

One hopes for something resembling truth, some sense of life,
even of grace, to flicker, at least, in the work.

Jasper Johns, 2006.

The hardback Jasper Johns exhibition catalogue includes 200 colour images across 240 pages. Contributions to this fascinating publication come from leading authorities on Johns's work, including Roberta Bernstein, Professor at the University at Albany, New York (SUNY) and author of the catalogue raisonné of Jasper Johns’s paintings and sculptures, and Edith Devaney, Curator of Contemporary Projects at the Royal Academy of Arts.

The volume accompanies Jasper Johns: ‘Something Resembling Truth’, the first comprehensive survey of the artist’s work to be held in the UK in 40 years. The exhibition is on display in the Main Galleries, Royal Academy of Arts from 23 September — 10 December 2017.
