Charles Tunnicliffe and the Royal Academy of Arts is temporarily closed until further notice. Please check the venue's website for the latest details.
This exhibition highlights some of Charles Tunnicliffe's great Royal Academy works, and examines the artist's relationship with one of the world's learding art institutions.
Charles Tunnicliffe's etchings and wood engravings were first shown at London's Royal Academy of Arts in 1928. In 1944 he became an Associate Member and in 1954 was elected a Full Member, submitting six paintings annually to the Summer Exhibition. He was held in such high regard that in 1974, with the help of fellow Royal Academician, Kyffin Williams, his phenomenal output as an artist was celebrated in a special Royal Academy Member's exhibition.
