The Royal Society of British Artists
The Royal Society of British Artists began in 1823, as the ‘Society of British Artists’, whose manifesto stated, ‘This organisation was not formed to rival existing societies but that every Member was to be at liberty to assist and support any other society’, a mentality that is continued to this day. Becoming the ‘Royal Society of British Artists’ in 1887, the Society attracted many painters and sculptors of note including Walter Sickert, Philip de László, LS Lowry, Henry Moore, Peter Greenham, Sir Roger de Grey, Carel Weight and Colin Hayes. In 1970 the RBA become the main contributor to the Federation of British Artists at Mall Galleries. www.royalsocietyofbritishartists.org.uk
