The Exhibition of the Royal Scottish Academy of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture, The Forty-Third, 1869
End Date: 1869
Type: Annual exhibition
Description: Annual Exhibitions of the Royal Scottish Academy have been held in the spring of each year since 1827.
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.
For further information on the history of the RSA see Frank Rinder & W. D. McKay, The Royal Scottish Academy, 1826-1916 (Glasgow: University Press, 1917) and Esme Gordon, The Royal Scottish Academy of Painting, Sculpture & Architecture 1826-1976 (Edinburgh: Charles Skilton, 1976).
