John Ruskin: Artist and Observer

August 22, 2014

John Ruskin is primarily remembered as Victorian Britain's leading art critic and the champion of Turner and the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Less well known is that Ruskin was an outstanding artist in his own right.

His exquisitely detailed drawings and watercolors were the result of an intense and passionate artistic impulse. This landmark exhibition, for the first time, provides a comprehensive overview of Ruskin's extraordinary artistic output.
