Drawings from the Royal Drawing School

New York, 23 January – 7 February 2016

The Royal Drawing School’s US inaugural exhibition of drawings at Christie’s New York runs alongside Master Drawings Week New York 2016 and Christie’s Old Master and British Drawings sale. The selling exhibition of over 70 drawings by contemporary practicing artists will span three rooms and includes drawings from alumni, faculty and artists closely associated with the Royal Drawing School including Christopher Le Brun, President of the Royal Academy, Humphrey Ocean RA, Timothy Hyman RA, Catherine Goodman, Artistic Director of the Royal Drawing School, David Dawson, Ishbel Myerscough, Sarah Pickstone and Stuart Pearson Wright.

Now in its sixteenth year, the School was founded by HRH The Prince of Wales along with artist Catherine Goodman with the aim of raising the standard and profile of observational drawing through teaching and practice. The School is one of The Prince’s Charities. Commission from the sales of these drawings will go towards funding the School’s scholarship programs.
