We're proud to announce a new creative partnership with the Royal Academy of Arts. A series of films will explore our shared history and artistic heritage, which together represent some of the most defining moments in the story of British art history and innovation over the last 200 years.
We present a glimpse into the world of artist and President of the Royal Academy, Christopher Le Brun, where we find out more about Winsor & Newton's relationship with the 249-year-old institution and experience insights into Le Brun's own creative process.
