This magnificent showcase highlights important moments in the history of the Academy and its Royal Academicians, from its original status as a showcase for grand society portraiture and history paintings to its current role as a platform for established, emerging and unknown artists.
A celebration of the history of art since the late eighteenth-century, The Great Spectacle is filled with artistic treasures from Reynolds and Gainsborough to Yinka Shonibare.
