1. Kept In School (1878). George Dunlop Leslie (English, 1835-1921).

    Leslie was a genre painter, author and illustrator. He studied at the Royal Academy and he showed his work every year thereafter.

    Leslie had some Pre-Raphaelites influences. He painted with the aim of showing “pictures from the sunny side of English domestic life.” 

    He often used children as subjects and his work was praised by John Ruskin for its portrayal of the “sweet quality of English girlhood.”
