Items related to John Ruskin

Ruskin was an influential art critic and writer during the 19th century. He was particularly supportive of JMW Turner (1775 - 1851) and the Pre-Raphaelite artists of the mid-19th century. His influential book was 'Modern Painters: Their Superiority in the Art of Landscape Painting to the Ancient Masters'. Among his descriptions of nature's elements, Ruskin wrote that artists should look directly at nature, 'rejecting nothing, selecting nothing, scorning nothing.'
