The Royal Scottish Academy (RSA) is a Scottish organisation that promotes contemporary Scottish art. Founded in 1826 as the Scottish Academy, it became the Royal Scottish Academy on being granted a royal charter in 1838. The RSA maintains a unique position in Scotland as an independently funded institution led by eminent artists and architects to promote and support the creation, understanding, and enjoyment of visual arts through exhibitions and related educational events. The RSA is separate from the Royal Academy in London, though there are links between the two organisations.
