Manchester school of painters

DEFINITION

The Manchester School of Painters was formed by a number of disgruntled young vanguard English painters in the 1870s. They were deeply influenced by the artist, Joseph Knight(1837-1909) who was a successful painter, etcher and photographer. He was the founder member of the group. Knight painted how ???he??? desired and refused to conform to traditional Art School rules (like those taught at the Manchester School of Art) and this appealed to his young admirers. Twice weekly they would all meet up at Knight???s studio in York Place behind the Union Chapel in Oxford Road, Manchester to discuss new ways to develop their techniques. Other members of the group were Joshua Hague, James Davies, Frederick Jackson and John Herbert Partington. Submitted by V.
