250th anniversary of the Summer Exhibition, Royal Academy of Arts

At one time this celebrated annual show was known simply as ‘The Exhibition’, where the likes of Gainsborough and Reynolds, Turner and Constable sharpened their skills against each other. Today, the galleries at Burlington House continue to provide an unrivalled setting for artists to display and sell their artworks. The array of works and the celebratory atmosphere of the exhibition make for a unique experience where visitors can browse, buy and discuss the works of show.
