The RA Collection Gallery in 2018

© Hayes Davidson

As a way of thanking National Lottery players for their contribution of nearly £13m towards the new Royal Academy, we are inviting them to a special free tour of our new Collection galleries.

Join us for a tour of The Making of an Artist: The Great Tradition, curated by artist and current RA President Christopher Le Brun. Does great art begin with studying nature, or studying the great art of the past? Decide for yourself in this new gallery, bringing together highlights from the RA Collection.

Please remember to bring your National Lottery ticket with you. All National Lottery games qualify, including tickets for any National Lottery draw-based game (Lotto, Euromillions) or National Lottery Scratchcard. Proof of ticket can be paper or digital and will admit one.
