The Royal Society of British Artists

THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF BRITISH ARTISTS
20 April 2019 - 12 May 2019

Aldeburgh

An exhibition of selected members of this long established and most revered society.

A group of painters met at Lincoln’s Inn Fields on 21st May 1823 to form the Society of British Artists as an alternative to the Royal Academy where the membership was limited to fifty members. Although the Society was granted a Charter in 1846 it was not until Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee Year of 1887, under the leadership of James McNeill Whistler that the Society could have the prefix ‘Royal’ and Whistler raised the profile of the Society by setting standards of acceptance. In the years that followed, the Society attracted many painters and sculptors of note including Walter Sickert, Philip de László, LS Lowry, Henry Moore, Peter Greenham, Sir Roger de Grey, Carel Weight and Colin Hayes.
