This article makes reference to artistic education in Chile. It provides diverse information about the aesthetic models and methodologies followed in the country, from the creation of the Academia de Pintura (Painting Academy) in 1849 up to the middle of the twentieth century. It analyzes some key elements that operated within the Escuela de Bellas Artes (School of Fine Arts) such as masters, leadership, disciples, debates, etc. As well, it illustrates the links between the school and other actors involved in the cultural activity in the country: the State, publicity circuits, and criticism, among others. The paper is centered on the contribution of three emblematic figures of the first half of the twentieth century whose teaching left its distinctive mark on a large number of national artists: Fernando Alvarez de Sotomayor, Juan Francisco González and Pablo Burchard.
