The Exhibition of The Royal Scottish Academy of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture, The One-Hundred- and-Sixteenth, 1942
Start Date: 24 April 1942
End Date: 15 August 1942
Type: Annual exhibition
Description: Annual Exhibitions of the Royal Scottish Academy have been held in the spring of each year since 1827.
In this year a section of the exhibition has been devoted to works by artists serving in the armed forces or the auxiliary forces in Scotland, and Scottish artists serving outside of Scotland.
Works for sale.
Policy: To encourage the practice of the Fine Arts in Scotland by showing to the public representative collections of works mainly from Scottish artists of the time.
Works shown at the RSA Annual Exhibition should be by living artists only, although a few works in reality were exhibited posthumously. Most works were submitted, although a number were 'invited' (RSA Dictionary, vol. 1, p. xv).
In addition to the Annual Exhibitions the Academy occasionally places on view, at another season of the year, memorial collections of the works of eminent artists recently deceased.
