Pictures in an Academy: The Royal West of England Academy Permanent Collection
Edited by John Sansom
This representative selection of paintings from the RWA’s astonishing collection of more than 1,300 paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture, ranges from the Victorian era to the present day. Most celebrate the richness and diversity of work produced by artists working in the mainstream tradition of twentieth-century British art.
Names such as John Aldridge, Vanessa Bell, Paul Feiler, Alethea Garstin, Dod Procter and William Townsend from the 1950s; Charles Cundall, Duncan Grant, John Piper, Anne Redpath and Gilbert Spencer from the 1960s, on through the decades to the
recent acquisition of work, to choose almost at random, by Gillian Ayres, Maurice Cockrill, David Inshaw and Peter Prendergast.
