SWANSEA CLAIMS I I TO WELSH NATIONAL ART I COLLEGE. I |PRINCIPAL GRANT MURRAY'S I OPINIONS: Principal Grant Murray, the director of the Swailseii, Municipal School of Art, and Crafts, says in regard to the proposed Welsh School of Painting that if a Welsh School of Fainting is desired it must be paid for in Wales. The present-day painters will do little or nothing towards establishing a dis- tin^t yjjitj definite school, "You must look to the students w arw studying in the various listitutions jit}w— they will be the founders of the future Welsh School of'Painting." Regarding a,nother proposal—-the estab- lishment of a Welsh National College of Art —Principal Murray says "This institution must necessarily go to the town that can command it by reason bf its superiority of equipment, staff, etc. "In Wales there are only five schools—no overlapping, but considerable underlapping. During the past few years Swansea has been laying the foundations for an art centre. The Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, with an excellent I nucleus illustrating nearly all the arts and art industries. The Deffet Francis Art Gal- lery has been renovated and reorganised, and it is undoubtedly one of the finest provincial collections of its kind in the United King- dom. "The S-chool of Arts and Crafts has also been reorganised and is making its influence felt in Soutli Wales. Its success has been exceptional—in five years the students' at- tendances have increased from 6.000 to 40,000. "In 1910 the Swansea Art School took 140th place in England and Wales; it is now the 25th. "If the work progresses in the future as it has done during the past few years, Swan- sea should have a fair -claim for one of the Central Schools, if not for the National Col- lege of Art for Wales."
