RCA Secret: what's on offer?
Think you can spot a Paula Rego or a Grayson Perry at 20 paces? RCA Secret challenges you to do just that
Celebrating its twentieth anniversary, RCA Secret returns this March. The annual RCA Secret sale allows you to get your hands on postcard-size artworks by RCA students, established artists, illustrators and designers, with all proceeds going towards the Royal College of Art Student Award Fund. All priced at £50 each, some of the postcards have even been created by famous names – Grayson Perry, Paula Rego, Yinka Shonibare, David Bailey, Ryan Gander, John Baldessari, Jeremy Deller and Sir Paul Smith have all contributed to this year's sale. The 'secret' of the sale is that, since the signature is on the back of the postcard, you won't know for certain whose work you're buying until you've paid for it.
You can view the postcards at the gallery and on the RCA website from March 13–22 ahead of the sale on March 22 – but we've managed to get our hands on a handful of images so you can size up the artworks before everyone else.

With a new sponsor (Stewarts Law) and home for its twentieth year, the Royal College of Art's annual fundraiser returns with its sale of postcard-size artworks. For ten days in the RCA's Dyson building in Battersea, you'll be able to view over 2,500 works all priced at £50 by artists and designers from students to famous names but you can't buy anything until Saturday 22 March. Previous contributors have included Grayson Perry, Paula Rego, David Bailey and Sir Paul Smith. So what's the secret? Well, you wont know who the work is by until you've bought it.
