Great Artists | Great Teachers has been curated in response to the 250th anniversary of the Royal Academy of Arts, London, in Autumn 2018 and takes as its starting point the influence of Sir Joshua Reynolds, born in Plymouth (1723 –1792), one of the principal founders and first presidents of the Royal Academy of Arts. The exhibition includes a series of extracts from Reynolds’ Discourses on Art drawn from the city’s permanent collections
