Two centuries of Scottish art history.

Since its founding in 1826, the Royal Scottish Academy has elected nearly 500 artists and architects as Royal Scottish Academicians.

Our Academicians include some of the most acclaimed names in contemporary Scottish art and architecture.

Royal Scottish Academicians (Members) are eminent artists and architects, elected by their peers, who are Scots by birth or domicile. The majority live and work in Scotland, from the Northern Isles to the Borders.
