Join us for a morning visit to the new exhibition of drawings followed by lunch at a local eaterie
Discover drawings made by some of the most important and influential artists of the 19th Century, including Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Seurat, Van Gogh and Monet. Consider how their drawings influenced other aspects of their practice and allowed them to shape their art further including working with non-local colour palettes and more avant-garde compositions.
There will be ample time to enjoy the exhibition plus the permanent displays at The Royal Academy as well as other temporary exhibitions, or sketch in the space.
After our visit to the gallery, there is the option to join us for lunch at The Crypt Cafe in Trafalgar Square (approx. 10-15 minute walk away).
We will meet outside the entrance to The Royal Academy at 9.50am with view to entering the exhibition at 10am.
