RSA Collections

Our collections contain some of the best of Scotland’s art and architecture of the last 200 years and beyond. We hold one of the oldest institutional collections in Scotland and at its core is the Diploma Collection of works selected by Royal Scottish Academicians. These same Academicians have guided the RSA as an institution and developed the collections over our long history. Today, the collections contain over 9,000 artworks, and a related archive and library, and in 2008 were Recognised as a Collections of National Significance to Scotland.

The RSA Art Rental Scheme

Our Art Rental Scheme offers you a wonderful opportunity to enjoy outstanding artworks in your workplace at a fraction of the cost of purchasing them outright. We offer a wide range of contemporary artworks direct from artists’ studios across Scotland as well as paintings from our own collections.
