Christopher Cavania Sanders was selected as an Associate of the Royal Academy of Arts on April 24, 1953, elected as a Royal Academician on 21 February 2 1961, and became a Senior Academician on January 1, 1981. He exhibited frequently and regularly at the Royal Academy from 1933 onwards and also became a member of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters in 1962. In 1955 he won a gold medal at the Paris Salon.
