Foyles presents 'The Company of Artists' with Charles Saumarez Smith and Paul Huxley RA
The Company of Artists by Charles Saumarez Smith tells the story of the enterprising artists who founded the Royal Academy of the Arts in 1768. In discussion at London Art Fair, Saumarez Smith, the present-day Secretary and Chief Executive of the Royal Academy of the Arts, and painter and treasurer, Paul Huxley RA, will examine the role of this independent, privately-funded, artist-led institution in today's changing world of public art and patronage.
Charles Saumarez Smith will be signing copies of 'The Company of Artists: The Origins of the Royal Academy of Arts in London after the talk.
