The Royal Academy's annual Summer Exhibition has been unveiled to the press. It includes Happy Hour by Patrick Caulfield, who died in September.
The Summer Exhibition, now in its 238th year, is billed as "the world's largest open contemporary art exhibition". Professor David Mach 's Heirs and Graces is in this year's show.
Damien Hirst's 35ft-tall, 13-and-a-half-ton statue The Virgin Mother is in the Royal Academy's courtyard. The Virgin Mother has layers removed on one side to reveal the foetus.
Some 1,000 works are chosen from 8,000 submissions by established and unknown artists alike. Chantal Joffe's Blond Girl - Black Dress is among those chosen this year.
The Summer Exhibition's doors will be open from Monday to 20 August to let people see paintings such as Leonard McComb's Portrait of Simon, Karen Day, and Family.
