Slade school of art

DEFINITION

Founded in 1871, and now a part of the University of London, it was an art school whose founding purpose was to "provide progressive training based on intensive study from the life model." Yearly prizes were awarded for portrait, life, antique and landscape drawing, and beginning in the 1890s, the University kept the award-winning works. North American artists attending the School include Philip Evergood, Helen McNicoll, Georges Ault, Cecily Brown, Anthony Caro, and Rachel Whiteread. Among famous English artist attendees were Dora Carrington, Ben NIcholson and Mark Gertler.
