British school at rome

DEFINITION

A residential school in Rome, Italy near the Borghese Gardens and founded in 1901 as a centre for archaeological research, it now houses a Faculty of Arts for Architecture, Sculpture and Painting. Painters are recipients of Abbey Scholarships and Abbey Fellowships, and are housed in "superbly modern studios." The school is named for Edwin Austin Abbey, an American who spent much of his career in England and Italy, and was active in founding the school. Upon his death in 1911, his widow provided memorial funds to build seven-studio apartments, which are used for recipients of the Abbey Awards. (See Glossary) http://www.abbey.org.uk/page3.htm
