Hi tenpot, thanks for the post It's amazing how many talented artists started there careers in Yorkshire , Moore, Hepworth, Hirst etc, why did the name get changed from the Jacob Kramer college ? I will post one of Patrick Oliver's Yorkshire paintings.

I saw that the Tate has some of Kramer's work together with a sculpture of him by his friend, another Jacob.............. Epstein that is.

its a story of rivalry, there was allways a battle between the main art college and the university which had an arthistory course around 170 the art college was moved into the polytechnic and became just a fine art departement , the old art college building became the Jacob Kramer and had a foundation year course, later they colluded with the university to have a degree course and changed their name to Leeds college of art claiming Moore and Hepworth as alumni (they have changed it again since) , not strictly true, the poly inbetween time became the Becket University. It's all to do with academic infighting and money
