Print REbels celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth of the founder of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers, Sir Francis Seymour Haden (RE). A prestigious collection of works has been brought together to show prints produced by Haden along with those who inspired him such as Rembrandt and Dürer, Samuel Palmer and JAM Whistler.
The RE has always been closely connected with the RA, with several Royal Academicians being founding members of the RE. Works showing by RA, RE members include: Frank Brangwyn, Henry Rushbury, Anthony Gross, Julian Trevelyan, Norman Ackroyd, Anne Desmet, Peter Freeth, Chris Orr and Christopher Le Brun.
2018 is also the 250th anniversary of the Royal Academy, making this a fitting time to honour this connection.
