events programme
Go to exhibition page

We invite Friends of the RA to join us for an exclusive preview of our ‘Klimt / Schiele: Drawings from the Albertina Museum, Vienna’ exhibition before it opens to the public.

This new exhibition will offer an intimate insight into the artistic relationship between two ground-breaking artists who shared a mutual admiration for each other’s talents and their divergent yet at times compellingly parallel styles.

Showcasing around 100 portraits, landscapes, nudes and erotic drawings, Klimt/Schiele will present some of the 20th century’s most important works on paper, which due to their delicacy will not be displayed again for many years. Highlights will include Klimt’s sketches for his seminal Beethoven Frieze, and unflinching self-portraits by Schiele. Prepare to encounter these two icons of Modernism at their most raw and revealing.

Join us this autumn for an exclusive preview of what promises to be an extremely popular exhibition, three days before it opens to the public, and explore this extraordinary collaboration with the Albertina Museum in Vienna.

Booking is essential

Klimt/Schiele will be held in our smaller Sackler Galleries and we anticipate our preview days will be extremely popular.

To ensure the best possible experience, Friends are required to book a free timed ticket for both themselves and their guest, whether visiting on the remaining preview days or during the normal run of the exhibition.

Exhibition organised by the Royal Academy of Arts, London and the Albertina Museum, Vienna.

This event is open to Friends of the RA, RA250 Friends and RA250 Supporters and members of the Academicians’ Room only.
