Use this search-screen to explore the Academy's collections of paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints and historic photographs. It is currently only possible to search for works of art which have been digitised. More images are added each month, and in due course all records will be made available.
Use the Name field to search for artists in the collection, e.g. Constable; Joshua Reynolds; Waterhouse, John, etc. You can limit your search to one particular role, e.g., printmaker, photographer, sitter, etc, using the Role pick-list.
Enter words from the title in the Title field. Or a combination of terms, e.g. artists name, words from title, subject term, etc, in the All fields field, e.g. `turner and portrait`.
Use the Object Type field to limit your search to works in a particular medium, e.g. Drawing or Sculpture. If you wanted to find all the drawings of or by Constable in the Collection, type Constable in the Name field and select Drawing from the Object Type pick-list.
Limit the search to works produced in a particular year, or date range via the Date field, e.g. 23 May 1812; 1765; 1700:1770; 18th Century.
If you only want to retrieve works of art which have images, click the Image tick-box.
