A study in four parts of the development of Art and Design Education in the nineteenth century. Although the 1835-36 Select Committee on Arts and Manufactures is cited as the starting point the actual scope of this study predates 1835 and Part I looks at the important antecedents that led up to the setting up of this Committee, being the point at which Design Education was perceived as an important necessity to support the country's industrial growth and ward off the threat of foreign competition. Part 11 looks at the outcome of that Committee and the setting up of the Metropolitan and Provincial Schools of Design. Part III covers the Oepartment of Practical Art/Department of Science and Art, and how the South Kensington System created by Henry Cole controlled Art and Design Education. The final Part IV looks at the forces that eroded South Kensington particularly the influence of the Fine Arts, and Art and Craft Movement, and the increasing control of municipal authority. The finishing point of the study is the 1902 Education Act.
