Language of Line

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of John Flaxman's appointment as the first Professor of Sculpture at the Royal Academy of Arts, the academy will show The Language of Line: John Flaxman’s illustrations to the works of Homer and Aeschylus from 27 July until 29 October. This detail is taken from Flaxman's elegant line drawing Lampetia complaining to Apollo (1792-1793) using pen and ink with pencil on paper. You'll find the exhibition in the Library Print Room, next to the Sackler Galleries. Admission is free. There is also a free curator's talk on Flaxman on Tuesday 5 October at 3.30pm in the Library Print Room, no booking necessary.
