Scope and content

Awards in Polite Arts were given in many categories. These prints, paintings, drawings and engravings have been arranged by subject of the artwork. This may not always be a clear reflection of the categories for which the drawings were initially submitted.\nThe series is arranged as follows:\n Ornamental designs, textile designs, flowers, drawings from nature: items 1 to 124\n Portraits, figures, drawings from life: items 130 to 409\n Landscapes: items 410-509\n Drawings of sculpture, classical scenes and figures: items 520-799\n Architectural designs, drawings, plans: items 800- 928\n Trial paintings (oil on board, canvas) 929-\nThese submissions have survived, although it is not clear how many other submissions there were in each category in each year. Although some of the designs and drawings (particularly in the first category) date from c. 1758, the majority of items are from the period c.1805 to 1830, with a small number later than this.\n\nA report by the Victoria and Albert Museum from the 1950s stated that the main interest of these drawings lies in the fact that they constitute a comprehensive collection covering an extended period.
