Artwork description

Desmet’s strong emotional connection to the Royal Academy is reflected in these works that celebrate the newly renovated 6 Burlington Gardens, which will include new galleries when it re-opens to the public in May 2018. These prints explore the historical architecture of the building, the imposing entrance staircase for example, and the artist’s discovery of newly created spaces, particularly the grand lecture theatre which she describes as being like a coliseum.

All proceeds from sales of this work go directly to support the non-profit-making areas of the Royal Academy, particularly the RA Schools.
