What is an Art School?

1670s – The beginning, people sat round a statue or piece of art and had to draw it

1860s – All work was predictable, all female nudes, tedious but beautiful

1863 – Edauant Manet – painted naked women but not the similarly predictable way as before, she was painted naked rather than nude. People didn’t like the naked side of it – it made women look more vulnerable and weaker.
