Royal Drawing School:
Best of the Drawing Year 2019-20

London, 24–26 May 2021

Christie’s is pleased to host the The Royal Drawing School for a selling exhibition of drawings and works on paper by the 30 students studying on The Drawing Year post graduate programme. The exhibition offers a range of work, rich in observation, imagination and storytelling. The graduating artists come from a range of backgrounds and artistic disciplines, including painting, printmaking, animation, and illustration.

The Royal Drawing School is an independent, not-for-profit resource that aims to raise the standard and profile of drawing through teaching and practice. The School was founded by HRH The Prince of Wales along with artist Catherine Goodman in 2000.

The exhibition will move to the Royal Drawing School’s gallery in Shoreditch at 19–22 Charlotte Road, EC2A 3SG, exhibiting an expanded collection of over 500 drawings from 4–17 June 2021, and can be viewed online at
