The Slade Lectures

The Slade Lectures, which were founded in pursuance of the will of Felix Slade in 1869, focused on art historical topics, as they continue to do so today.  John Ruskin delivered his first lecture as the Slade Professor of Fine Art in 1870.  The Slade Professorship in conjunction with the University’s museums, libraries and college collections helped to foster a wider interest in the history of art.
