From LifeLooking to the past, present and future of one of the cornerstones of artistic process, the Royal Academy asks what it means to make art From Life, and how the practice is evolving as technology opens up new ways of making and seeing. Historic paintings by artists like Johann Zoffany RA are displayed alongside works by contemporary artists, including Jeremy Deller and Cai Guo-Qiang, as well as artwork by Royal Academicians including Michael Landy, Jenny Saville, Antony Gormley and Gillian Wearing.
