This exhibition will present a selection of Ken Howard paintings of Switzerland, made during his extensive travels.

Inspired by JMW Turner's tours in 1841, Ken Howard made five visits to Switzerland, resulting in one hundred plein-air oil paintings on board and canvas. They all feature monumental landscapes, lakes and historical towns.

Note: This exhibition will be held inside the Belle Shenkman Room in the Keeper's House. If you are not a Friend, Patron or Member of the RA you will need to ask the staff at the Keeper's House for permission to see the 'Academicians in Focus' exhibition (before 4 PM only).
