Former students of the London Slade School of Art, Augustus John and Stephen Granger were members of The New English Art Club, which was founded in 1886 by “former Royal Academicians, such as John Singer Sargent,…as a reaction against the restrictive and parochial attitude of the Royal Academy. The New English Art Club, which was the first of many independent exhibiting societies, contributed to the introduction of French studio practices of life drawing and modified plein-air techniques…and is still in existence.” Ref: Tate (extract from Windsor, Handbook of Modern Painting, 1900-1980).
