Farrer was trained at the Working Men's College in Red Lion Square where Madox Brown, Ruskin and Rossetti all taught. Farrer pioneered Ruskin's techniques in the States as an art instructor at the Cooper Union in NY City from 1861-5. He applied the PR techniques to the American landscape as in this view.
