The Archives’ latest online exhibition, ‘The Society’s Portrait and Bust Collection’, focuses on the paintings and sculptures of Fellows and distinguished individuals which are displayed around the rooms and staircase of the Society’s apartments in Burlington House.
The exhibition gives an introduction to the sitters depicted and their connections with our organisation, from Mary Anning to Henry Woodward. This collection joins the Society’s other online exhibitions, ‘Louis Agassiz’s Fossil Fish’ and ‘Women and Geology in the 19th century.
