The Royal Academy is celebrating their 250th anniversary in 2018. As part of RA250 institutions around the country are joining in with their celebrations, including the Fitzwilliam Museum. Together we identified 6 Royal Academicians who have connections with Cambridge and the Fitz: Eileen Cooper, Stephen Chambers, Anne Desmet, Antony Gormley, Nigel Hall and Mali Morris. We asked each of them to select works from the Fitzwilliam collection, which they find inspiring, and to share why.
See selected works in the galleries throughout the year with special interpretation, and pick up a commemorative leaflet (available from both entrances). Follow the University of Cambridge Museums’ blog for artist’s posts.
