Royal Academy of Arts Review
Housed in an aristocratic mansion and home to Britain's first art school (founded in 1768), the academy is best known for its blockbuster special exhibitions—like a controversial Sensation show drawn from the Saatchi collection and a record-breaking Monet show—though it also has a permanent collection that includes Michelangelo's marble Taddei Tondo. The annual Summer Exhibition has been a popular London tradition since 1769.
