People who have saved this event:


A celebration of the bicentenary of the birth of John Ruskin (1819-1900), arguably the finest prose writer of non-fiction of the Victorian age.


High among Ruskin’s wide-range of achievements and interests was his role as art critic, and he was also one of the greatest non-professional artists of his time. The artists included in this exhibition either helped him hone his aesthetic and skills or received his praise and support. The variety and quality of their works help to emphasise Ruskin’s place within the history of art: Samuel Prout (1783-1852)  • Copley Fielding (1787-1855) • William Henry Hunt (1790-1864) • George Cruikshank (1792-1878) • John Leech (1817-1864) • Louisa, Marchionesss of Waterford (1818-1891) • John Tenniel (1820-1914) • Hercules Brabazon Brabazon (1821-1906) • Richard Doyle (1824-1883) • Alfred William Hunt (1830-1896) • George Du Maurier (1834-1896) • Albert Goodwin (1845-1932) • Kate Greenaway (1846-1901) • Helen Allingham (1848-1926)
