The Nineteenth-Century Artist-Teacher: A Case Study of George Wallis and the Creation of a New Identity
Daichendt, G. James
International Journal of Art & Design Education, v30 n1 p71-80 Feb 2011
"Artist-teacher" is a conceptually rich term in the field of art and design education used to describe the professionally distinct roles of artist and teacher. George Wallis (1811-91), a nineteenth-century artist and teacher, the subject of this article, first used the term "artist-teacher" to describe himself and his theories of art education. To better understand this new term, the researcher organised the diverse aspects of Wallis's life from 1811 to 1845 as a network of enterprises to track the streams of thinking that contributed to this professional statement. Through comparison, ordering and sequencing the various enterprises, a deeper and reflective understanding of Wallis's teaching developed. In fact, the network of enterprises displays the growth of Wallis's thought as a slow and evolving process, eventually highlighting the turbulent situation that provoked Wallis to defend his theories and practices when he conjured the new term.
