Event History

Since its foundation in 1831, the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours (RI) has promoted the essentially English art of watercolour. Formally called the New Society of Painters in Watercolours, with its origins in the Old Water Colour Society of the 18th Century, the RI was formed to exhibit the best of progressive watercolours and to show non-members’ works alongside that of members, a policy still followed today.
