Excerpt from Lectures on Painting Some account of the general rise and progress of European academies of arts will be, perhaps, the most appropriate introduction to a series of academic discourses: to this will be appended slight biographical sketches of the authors, followed by a review of their distinctive characteristics of style, both as regards their subject matter and their mode of expression. It does not appear that the Greeks or Romans had any public or gratuitous academies of the arts of design. There was at Sicyon a very celebrated private school, more celebrated, indeed, than perhaps any public school of modern times has ever been.
