What is now known as the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art was established by John Ruskin in 1871 as The Ruskin School of Drawing.

It is part of the University of Oxford, and offers both undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications in the theory and practice of visual art. 

In the period in which Brideshead Revisited is set, the school was housed in the Ashmolean Museum.
