A group of works by the late Tom Phillips CBE RA in Room VIII of the 2023 Royal Academy Summer Exhibition which opens on Monday 13th June.

Exhibited for here the first time is the original artwork to three Humument pages as well as a single Humument print, bottom left. The large painting reflects the theme of this year's exhibition, "Only Connect", while the silver wire sculpture quotes from Wittgenstein's Tractatus, "The Limits of My Language are the Limits of my World".
