When John Ruskin wrote to Wilson Barrett in praising his production of Claudian and urging him to follow it up with other classically-set plays, he ended his letter with the ringing statement: ‘With scene-painting like that at the Princess’s Theatre, (you) might do more for art teaching than all the galleries and professors of Christendom’ (CW ).
