Alice, ca. 1926
Sir Walter Westley Russell RA (1867 - 1949)
RA Collection: Art
Sir Walter Westley Russell became Keeper in 1927 and continued the work of his predecessor Charles Sims, who replaced the ‘visitor’ system of teaching by RAs with professional teaching staff directed by the Keeper. In doing so Russell helped bring teaching at the RA Schools into line with the educational model of the Slade School of Fine Art, where Russell was an assistant professor before becoming Keeper.
