From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Royal Society of British Artists (RBA) is a British art body established in 1823 as the Society of British Artists, as an alternative to the Royal Academy.



The RBA has 110 elected members who participate in an annual exhibition currently held at the Mall Galleries in London. The Society's previous gallery was a building designed by John Nash (architect) in Suffolk Street. Queen Victoria granted the Society the Royal Charter in 1887.

It is one of the 9 member societies that form the Federation of British Artists which administers the Mall Galleries, next to Trafalgar Square.

Its records 1823–1985 are in the Victoria and Albert Museum.[1]
