The great spectacle: 250 years of the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition

Hallett, Mark; Turner, Sarah Victoria

The Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition is the world's longest running annual display of contemporary art, and one of its largest. Ever since 1769 the Academy's exhibition rooms have been crowded for some two months each year with thousands of paintings and sculptures by many of Britain's leading artists. These spectacular displays have provided artists with crucial competition, inspiration and publicity, and captured the interest of millions of visitors. 'The Great Spectacle' takes the reader on a fascinating journey to tell the story of these exhibitions
