Life drawing gets a virtual reality update

In the run up to its 250th birthday, the Royal Academy of Arts is taking a special look at a tradition once considered an essential part of the training for any aspiring artist.

Examples of drawing from casts and life models have been traced back from the origins of the RA right up to the present day - with a special look at how the discipline could work in the future. 

From Life is on show at the Royal Academy until the 11th March 2018.
