The RSMA Diploma Collection is a significant body of work representing well over 100 members, past and present. Sadly the Society does not have the means to display this collection and the works are currently held in storage, as the majority have been for many years.
The membership of the Society has now taken the decision to sell the work and at some time during the latter part of 2017 the entire collection will be presented at auction by Keys Fine Art Auctioneers at Aylsham, Norwich.
Whilst all the works are related to the sea and the marine environment, the range of subject matter and style is considerable. Featured in the sale will be oil paintings, watercolours and pastel paintings by many of the UK's foremost marine artists.
