The Exhibition of the Royal Scottish Academy of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture, The One-Hundredth - Centenary Exhibition, 1926
Start Date: 17 April 1926
End Date: 28 August 1926
Type: Annual exhibition
Description: Centenary exhibition, largely of a retrospective nature. Works for sale.
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).
This centenary exhibition was strictly limited to the works of Scottish artists, i.e artists of Scottish birth , or artists resident or settled in Scotland.
In addition to the Annual Exhibitions the Academy occasionally placed 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).
