Summer Exhibition 1978 Epic Poster
To celebrate the 250th anniversary of the Royal Academy, we've collaborated with Surface View to present an unparalleled collection of our past posters.
By 1978 a tradition had evolved whereby a recently elected Academician would design the Summer Exhibition poster. This example features a work by Donald Hamilton Fraser RA (1929-2009). The poster image features a kite - a motif that interested the artist to the extent that he also designed two kites that were sold in the gallery shop.
L: 100 x 150cm

This retrospective collection of Royal Academy posters, created in colllaboration with Surface View, displays a glorious intersection between art and design, and includes classic posters such as the seminal Sensation Exhibition in 1997 designed by Why Not Associates, Anish Kapoor’s ground breaking exhibition of 2008, and Henri Matisse’s artwork featured on the 1975 French Graphic Art exhibition poster.
Each poster is printed on robust Tyvek® paper with a satin finish and is supplied with struts and bulldog clips for fixing. Each print retains the quality, quirks and age-worn beauty of the original image.
