Many of you, I am sure, will have visited the Royal Academy, either to go to their popular Summer Exhibition or just to meet up there for lunch.
However, I am sure that not many of you will have had the chance to see their incredible archives.
The Royal Academy Schools have trained many famous artists from Gainsborough to Peter Blake and many of these Royal Academicians have been leaving letters and information to the Academy throughout their careers, which are now housed in the library.
I am delighted that archivist Mark Pomeroy will be on hand to entertain and surprise us with letters from Thomas Gainsborough, Sir Joshua Reynolds and much, much more.
