Achitect, Sir David Chipperfield unveils plans for a major redevelopment of the Royal Academy of Arts which will be completed in time for its 250th anniversary in 2018. The project is the most important development of the Royal Academy in its history. The development will allow key works from the Royal Academy’s Collection to be brought out of store and go on view to the public. These include Queen Victoria’s paintbox, Turner’s travelling watercolour box, Joshua Reynolds’ diaries, a rarely displayed Pissarro drawing, and letters between artists such as Thomas Gainsborough to Sir Joshua Reynolds. 11 May 2015.
