Summer Exhibition, 1960 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.
Publicity continued to be a matter of some anxiety within the Royal Academy as, by 1960, its finances were in a parlous condition. The direct impact of posters on exhibition attendance was difficult to prove and in 1958 a poster had been abandoned altogether. Two designs were created for the exhibition of 1960. This rare survival designed by Theo Ramos is possibly a proof print, produced by Kelpra to assist the Academy’s Council in making a final decision as to which to use.
L: 100 x 150cm
