The Exhibition of the Royal Scottish Academy of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture, The Eighty-Fifth, 1911
Start Date: 13 May 1911
End Date: 13 August 1911 (Probable)
Type: Annual exhibition
Description: Annual Exhibitions of the Royal Scottish Academy have been held in the spring of each year since 1827.
Art works were for sale. The Assistant Secretary was present in the Galleries from 2pm to 4pm, to give away information to intending purchasers.
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.
