Grant, Anita (1995) Arthur Lismer in the context of Sheffield. Masters thesis, Concordia University.
This is an analysis of the writings and lectures of Arthur Lismer on the subject of art appreciation and how they reflected the socio-political influences of late-nineteenth and early twentieth-century Sheffield. A detailed examination of this environment discusses the radical political history of the city, its support of non-conformist religions, and the educational system, all of which would have affected Lismer. Also discussed is the art milieu in Sheffield, which included three museums, a school of art, the Heeley Art Club, and particularly the pervading influence of John Ruskin. Parallels are drawn between Lismer's Sheffield background and his views on art appreciation, which included concerns about art training and education, the lack of aesthetic awareness, and the need for social and civic responsibility in the general public.
