Summary "The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition is the world’s longest-running open-submission display of contemporary art. Ever since 1769, for some two months each year, the Academy’s galleries have been crowded with thousands of paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings and architectural models and plans by Britain’s leading artistic names, from Reynolds and Turner to Hockney and Emin, alongside the works of a host of artists as yet unknown. This lavishly illustrated book takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the history of these exhibitions and assesses their cultural significance for British art."--Publisher.
