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

Product story

Primarily a painter, Sydney Lee was widely acclaimed for his prints of landscapes, town scenes and historic buildings, executed in a remarkable variety of sizes and media. He travelled throughout Britian and Europe in search of subjects both epic and picturesque, and his fusion of japanese and European influences elevated printmaking to high art.
This book written by Robert Meyrick, a leading authority on printmaking, accompanies the third exhibition of past Royal Academician printmakers. It offers a long overdue appraisel of Lee's contribution to British art by examining his varied output and placing his work in the context of artistic practice in Britain and beyond. This raisonne establishes for the first time an accurate chronolgy of the artist's printed oeuvre.
24.5 x 23.5 cms, 191 pages, 170 illustrations.
