The exhibition of French art 1200-1900 was held at the Royal Academy of Arts between January and March 1932. The first room contained 'IXth to XVIth centuries. Paintings, tapestries, sculptures, objects d'art and manuscripts'. This is the view from the doorway to gallery 2, with the vestibule and galleries 11 and 10 beyond. In the same year, S R Badmin showed several of his own etchings in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
Though S R Badmin describes this as the 'first' room, it is actually gallery XI, containing XIXth century paintings and especially those by Impressionists and Post-Impressionists. It is seen from the doorway to gallery X, with the vestibule and galleries I and II beyond.
