This modern riverside gallery next to the Tate Modern is home to the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolour (RWS) and the Royal Society of Painter/Printmakers (RE).
The RWS permanent collection includes works by John Sell Cotman, David Cox, Russell Flint, David Jones, John Singer Sargent and Leslie Worth. Permanent works by the RE include pieces by Alphonse Legros, Auguste Rodin, Walter Sickert and Graham Sutherland.
The gallery hosts regular exhibitions of watercolours and engravings and many of these works are for sale.
The gallery’s shop sells a good selection of books and materials.
The Founders’ Arms, a public house opposite the gallery’s front entrance, was built on the site of the foundry where the bells for St Paul’s were cast. Good for a drink and look at the views of the Thames.
