First published in the 1870s, the Summer Exhibition Illustrated presents the highlights of each year’s selection and is a fascinating barometer of changing artistic tastes.
The Royal Academy’s popular Summer Exhibition has been an annual event since 1769. Today, around a thousand works are chosen each year from over 12,000 entries. The exhibition, which includes paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, architectural designs and models, is the largest open-submission exhibition show in the world. For 2016, coordinator Richard Wilson RA has specially invited over 20 renowned artistic duos to feature within the exhibition, including Jake and Dinos Chapman, Gilbert & George, Jane and Lousie Wilson, Tim Noble and Sue Webster and Pierre at Gilles.
