Product story

The Royal Academy's popular Summer Exhibition has been an annual event since 1790. Today, around a thousand works are selected each year from over 10,000 entries. The exhibition includes paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, architectural design and models, and continues to be the largest open exhibition in the UK.

First published in the 1870s, the Summer Exhibition Illustrated presents the highlights of each year's show and is a fascinating barometer of changing artistic tastes. With illustrations of a wide range of the works on display, installation shots of the galleries, an essay on portraiture by the art historian Richard Cork and informative introductions to each of the rooms, the book is an indispensable record of this most popular event.


Fully illustrated the catalogue has 191 pages and is 24 x 19.5cm.

The Summer Exhibition List of Works 2014 is a text only reference which includes the titles, artists and prices of all the works in the exhibition.
