From the eighteenth century to the twenty-first, the Royal Academy of Arts in London has occupied an outstanding, sometimes controversial and always unique position in the art world. Its Annual Exhibitions, now known as the Summer Exhibitions, have seen artistic reputations rise and fall, and its permanently popular international loan exhibitions have helped to shape the public’s appreciation of the visual arts.
As it celebrates its 250th year, the Academy continues to be overseen and run by artists. Packed with illustrations, this concise introduction to the Academy’s 250-year story considers the people, places and events that have made the Academy such a prolific institution.
Peter Sawbridge is Editorial Director at the Royal Academy of Arts.
