The Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers: Virtual Tour

The Atkinson Gallery is pleased to welcome a selection of artists’ work from The Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. The exhibition encompasses a range of print styles and techniques, including monoprint, relief printing, intaglio, screen print, lithography and digital print.

Originally known as the Society of Painter-Etchers, the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers (RE) was founded by Francis Seymour Haden in 1880 and received its Royal Charter from Queen Victoria in 1888. To this day it continues to promote original printmaking in all its forms, widen the knowledge and understanding of printmaking as a process, whilst also providing its members with artistic opportunities.

The Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers is one of the world's premier printmaking organisations. All of the Society's members are practising professional printmakers, elected after a rigorous selection by a panel of their peers.


The Gallery will be open Monday to Thursday 9:30am - 5:00pm for the general public to visit.  Please sign in via the Gatehouse upon arrival. You will also be able to view the exhibition virtually via the link on this page from Monday 6th September.
