"We have two galleries this year given to the work of individual artists - William Kentridge and Tom Phillips.

"Whereas William Kentridge is the newest international Honorary RA, Tom Phillips is a longstanding RA, and for many years - since the mid-60s – he has worked on a single work called A Humument, which is based on alterations to a Victorian novel. In this room we have 500 pages of this book, framed on the walls. It's a tribute to an extraordinary artist's life's work – so exceptional, and wonderful that the RA is able to make this work available to the enormous audience who come to this exhibition."
