PACCAR Room, Level 2 
Royal Shakespeare Theatre

For the first time, we are hosting an exhibition of the works of art created by RSC Honorary Associate Artist Antony Sher.

Performing with the Royal Shakespeare Company for over 35 years, Sher has taken inspiration from the rehearsal room and on-stage performances, creating a captivating account of his experiences through compelling artwork.

With large scale oil paintings, drawings and doodles, the display of over 40 works of art offers a fascinating peek into the theatrical process, giving an insight into Sher’s preparation for two of his most memorable roles – Sir John Falstaff (Henry IV) and King Lear. 

A range of artworks from the exhibition are for sale and part of the profits will go to the Stitch In Time campaign to restore and redevelop our Costume Workshop so that we can continue to create stunning costumes for you and audiences around the world to enjoy. This is a unique opportunity to purchase a work of art inspired by theatrical history created by one of our most acclaimed RSC actors. Prices start from £1,750 (plus VAT).


We would be delighted to welcome you to the exhibition which is open daily from 10am. If you are interested in buying an artwork please contact Laura Pitcher in the RSC Development Department, telephone: 01789 272543 or email: See a preview to the exhibition and full pricelist below.
