Book tickets at Royal Academy of Arts

We have special offers available on tickets for Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

 

BronzeFor most of us, after the glorious summer of London 2012, bronze evokes images of third place on the podium. But Bronze is also the subject of a new, unprecedented exhibition at the Royal Academy, bringing together outstanding works of bronze from the earliest times to the present in a thematic arrangement that is both fresh and unique. Bronze covers 5,000 years of artwork made from the metal, with pieces by Donatello, Bernini and Rodin. No such cross-cultural exhibition on this scale has ever been attempted, with 150 of the finest bronzes from Asia, Africa and Europe - including important discoveries and archeological excavations - all under one roof, some of them seen in the UK for the very first time. Give Bronze a gold medal.
