"Ernest Chesneau was the author of La Peintre Anglaise, which was published in England in 1885 as The English School of Painting, with a preface by John Ruskin. Ruskin’s twenty letters to Chesneau were written between 1867 and 1883, and contain many interesting passages devoted to Ruskin’s philosophy of art, and his opinions of various painters."
