Just walking into the building takes me through one of my favourite spots in London across from Fortum and Mason and through the shopping alleys. The RA always has something of interest. I remember awhile ago, standing in front of three huge Monet lilies that...More

Been to several exhibitions here over the years. Last visit was to see Jasper Johns. They have a very unique way of curating the exhibitions, and I always feel you get your money's worth. A must visit if you're in London.

Wow, wow, wow. A fabulous well curated exhibition. Another hit for the RA. Well done also on the wonderful new toilets - a pleasure to use.

"Privately supported"=very costly. What is most interesting about the Johns show is that it doesn't back away from showing the way he would take a potentially clever idea, and use it to create a dozen (or maybe a hundred) variations on the there--for instance, the...More

Even if you are in London as seldom as twice a year (as I am) I highly recommend a membership to the Royal Academy as their special exhibitions are typically phenomenally good. The Jasper Johns exhibition was particularly excellent. I have never been a huge...More
