This had become particularly evident in the context of the Schools, which had begun as unstructured sketching sessions in the Museum of Art before being formally constituted as a School of Design and a Painting School under two different masters in 1870. 20 In April of 1882 the Trustees addressed the problem by employing George Frederick Folingsby, a highly regarded Munich-trained artist, as their Master of Painting.

12 Many of the members of this group had, at best, a tenuous claim to affiliation with Old World gentry, but criteria such as land ownership, higher education, professional occupation (the law, medicine, the army or clergy) and membership of exclusive clubs enhanced their status in the colonial context. By the 1880s the extraordinary growth of the city had brought its own challenges to this self-constituted aristocracy. 13 And those boundaries were far from impervious.

His friends and mentors included George Clausen, Harold Rathbone, Hamo Thornycroft and Edward Onslow Ford, all of whom encouraged his ambition. Other associates were John Guile Millais, son of the renowned Pre-Raphaelite painter, journalists Harold Cox and Charles Whibley, and engravers and illustrators, Joseph and Elizabeth Pennell and Frederick Pegram. 25 In January 1887 the illustrations for a romantic novelette, The Resident Engineer, were published under the name of his brother Basil,26 perhaps because of a concern that this type of work could trivialise his reputation.
