J. W. W. Ravueil was the Professor of Drawing at the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY.


In 1895 Ravueil wrote to JW, as a former pupil, asking him to send a signed drawing to hang on the walls of the Drawing Academy at West Point. Ravueil already owned two drawings by JW executed under the tutelage of the artist Robert Walter Weir, art teacher at West Point (#05877). He enclosed for JW's perusal a prospectus for a 'Course of Technical and Free-hand Drawing' (#05878).
