Royal Society of British Artists
Founded in 1823, the RBA continues to advocate the highest standards of skill, expression and concept of draughtsmanship. The Society exhibits leading artists who employ a sound knowledge and application of draughtsmanship as the basis of their work. Their Annual Exhibition at the Mall Galleries, together with other regional and international members’ exhibitions held throughout the year, promote a renaissance of core aesthetic values within the visual arts
