Encyclopedia > Slade School of Fine Art

Part of the University College London, the Slade School of Art was founded in 1868 as the result of an endowment by Felix Slade. Many of the most accomplished British artists since have studied at the Slade, which offers both graduate and post-graduate qualifications; Lucian Freud and Roger Fry are among the many distinguished past members of the teaching staff.
