Ruskin's artists: studies in the Victorian visual economy : papers from the Ruskin Programme, Lancaster University
Published in the centenary year of the greatest writer on art, culture and society that this country has produced, this study of John Ruskin's engagement with art and architecture as a critic, a patron and a teacher offers fresh insights into both his writings, and into the visual economy of the Victorian world. Each essay examines Ruskin's relationship with an individual artist or a distinct aspect of art practice. J.M.W. Turner, D.G. Rossetti, W. Holman Hunt and E. Burne-Jones are among those artists discussed whose personal relationships with Ruskin affected his critical writing. Ruskin's attitude to women artists and his approach to the teaching of art are given special attention.Ruskin's Artists is edited by Robert Hewison, Slade professor of Fine Art at Oxford in the year 2000, and curator of the Tate Gallery's exhibition 'Ruskin, Turner and the Pre-Raphaelites', to which this is a companion volume.
