This landmark exhibition will explore the history and development of the RBSA from the foundation of the Birmingham Academy of Arts in 1814. It will highlight the achievement of eight generations of artists in the city with major works by Members and Associates including David Cox, Joseph Southall, Walter Langley and Arthur Gaskin. It will also explore the contribution made by women artists in exquisite works by Mary Gibson, Kate Eadie, the Society's first female Member, Teresa Clarke, and many others. Through some of the finest examples of painting, drawing, sculpture and printmaking from public and private collections the show will trace the changing and often conflicting ideals that united and divided the artists of Birmingham.
