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

Artwork description

Anthony Eyton RA has made a number of dynamic new paintings that explore the collapse of some laden shelves in his studio. This total concentration on a single subject throughout a series of still-lifes has taken the artist into new territory. Representing an acute consciousness of the passing of time and the fragility of existence, these works are dense with the rich colour and expressive mark-making for which Eyton is renowned.

Objects fall off a shelf, still suspended. It is too wonderful to clear away, entropy presents opportunity. A large photograph pinned-up behind, the ruins of Sindhia Ghat in Benares, confirms the idea of collapse. It has become a potent shrine, commanding my total attention.’

Anthony Eyton RA, 2017
