PRINTS AND THE ARTISTS’ PROCESS
Prints, drawings, sketchbooks and collections of artist equipment are a distinct strength of the RSA collections.
Copy prints after paintings, anatomical prints, prints as original artworks and print albums are nationally significant as a gathered body. Seen alongside the drawing, album and sketchbook collections they embody the beginning, middle and end of the artistic process.
In addition to the art side of the collections there are important objects that tell the story of the making process in the form of artist palettes, inspirational objects and tools.
By helping form a full picture of the artist these collections create an overview of the processes and practice of historic and contemporary artists.
