10th. December 2018

We celebrated the actual day of the Royal Academy’s 250th. anniversary in a relatively low key way, considering the different types of celebration which have taken place over the year as a whole:-  a tea party in which the cake was cut by the President and Keeper;  a meeting of the so-called General Assembly, which is traditionally held on the day of the anniversary and used to be accompanied by one of Reynolds’s Discourses, which were addressed at least as much to the students of the RA Schools as to his fellow Academicians;  and a dinner attended by large numbers of RAs, including Olafur Eliasson Hon. RA.   No fireworks.
