1883 - ?

Putney School of Art

Putney School of Art was originally founded in 1883 and has been in Oxford Road, Putney since 1895. The main benefactors of the original Victorian school were Sir William Lancaster (1841–1929), Baron Charles Edward Pollock (1823-1897) and Sir Arthur Jeff. The first ‘masters’ included John William Allison and James (John) Bowyer. Ten years after opening the intake was such that the existing student accommodation was too small when a purpose-built school was constructed and in 1906 was taken into the auspices of the London County Council. Now named Putney School of Art and Design, it has six studios designed specifically for painting, printmaking, drawing, ceramics and more recently, digital design.
