Example text

This is a conclusion with which Cole would, no doubt, have agreed. In 1853 he had noted: 'that we are always ready to recognise principles of good and bad taste to some extent . . ' (Cole, 1853). He goes on to give further instances of the exercise of taste as when, for example, the flavours of Souchong tea are compared with those of Pekoe tea. In another example, Cole discusses the different prospects that Kensington Square or Ladbroke Terrace present to the onlooker or inhabitant compared with Jennings Buildings in Gore Lane with its 'pungent gasses from smoke and tobacco smoke and fermented liquors and animal exhalations generally' (1853).

The Board of Trade, still pursuing its difficult course of trial and error, abolished the Committee of Management in November 1849 and a new committee, consisting only of 'laymen': Labouchere, Granville, Northcote, Porter and Booth, undertook the business, Redgrave, Poynter and Deverell usually being in attendance at its meetings (1963: 243). The invitation for Cole to submit plans for the reform of the Schools presented him with an opportunity to introduce his own form of administrative quango within the structure of the Schools, akin to that of the tightly knit organization that had planned the Great Exhibition: The remedy was to be found in a small but well paid executive: one Department Head, a Deputy who would deal with finance, establishment, administration and industrial relations, a Secretary, an Accountant, a Curator and Masters who would have charge of specific branches of manufacture (Bell, 1963: 233).

It will do nothing (except sometimes as an instrument in the hands of a higher doctrine) for the spiritual interests of society (Williams, 1985: 72). Cole, endeavoured to make a link between his ambitions for the Design Schools and the Museum with the concept of a 'higher doctrine' that Mill had talked about. This involved his ideas about fine art and design, but over-arching these ideas was the spirit of religious evangelical revival. The Museum, especially, was to be seen as a place where uplifting spiritual experiences could be had, as well as, for instance, a place where examples of what Cole thought was good design could be shown.
