From the Shadows: The Prints of Sydney Lee RA is showing at the Royal Academy of Arts until 26th May 2013. This long overdue celebration of the art of Sydney Lee RA (1866–1949) offers an opportunity to rediscover the work of one of Britain’s most significant yet overlooked painter-printmakers. The exhibition coincides with the launch of the first publication on Lee, written by the exhibition’s curator, Professor Robert Meyrick, Head of the School of Art at Aberystwyth University.
