Great Artists | Great Teachers

In celebration of the Royal Academy of Arts' 250th anniversary and Plymouth’s links through its first president, Sir Joshua Reynolds, Great Artists | Great Teachers will explore how some of the most significant artists and teachers from across the 20th-century and into the present day, continue to transform our perception of what great art is. 

From inaugural lectures to curatorial tours, join us in The Levinsky Gallery for the first exhibition of the autumn season.
