    In the build-up the RA’s 250th anniversary in 2018, we are digitising 10,000 new items from the Academy’s Collection – from works of art to letters and sketches. In this film, we take a look at how these works are chosen and what they can tell us about the history of art practice in the UK. Video: Warm Films.
