Breakfast in the Academicians' Room

We invite members of the Academicians’ Room to join us for an exclusive private view of our exhibitions ‘Picasso and Paper’ and ‘Léon Spilliaert’, with a complimentary breakfast.

Ahead of the galleries opening to the public, this is an intimate opportunity to browse the major installations of Picasso and Paper and the self-portraits of Léon Spilliaert at your leisure away from the crowds.

A light breakfast of fresh pastries and artisan coffee will be held in the Academicians’ Room. Food and drink will not be permitted into the galleries.

Picasso and Paper
Pablo Picasso rewrote the rules of painting, but he also tore up the rulebook for paper. In an exhibition of unprecedented scale, we unite over 300 of the artist’s works on and with paper – spanning his entire prolific career and representing a significant chapter in modern art.

Exhibition organised by the Royal Academy of Arts, London and the Cleveland Museum of Art in partnership with the Musée national Picasso-Paris.

Léon Spilliaert
From celebrated self-portraits to dreamlike views of the North Sea coast, this exhibition will introduce UK audiences to the visionary work of Belgian artist Léon Spilliaert.

Best known for a sequence of enigmatic self-portraits and for his atmospheric night-time scenes of Ostend, his visual explorations of the self and potent images of solitude align him with European modernists such as Edvard Munch and Vilhelm Hammershøi.

This event is open to members of the Academicians’ Room only. To book, please call 020 7300 8090 or email academiciansroom@raarts.org.uk.
