About

A talk by Stephen Wildman, Director of the Ruskin Library, Lancaster University. To compliment Radical Architecture, Stephen Wildman will present a talk illustrating the life and work of John Ruskin (1819-1900), one of the dominating cultural figures of the nineteenth century, famous for books including Modern Painters, The Stones of Venice and Unto This Last. As well as detailing his work as a draughtsman, art critic and supporter of artists including J.M.W. Turner and the Pre-Raphaelites, it will also describe his engagement with social and economic issues, and contact with contemporaries such as Thomas Carlyle, William Morris and Charles Darwin.
