The Worlds of John Ruskin
John Ruskin (1819-1900) is best known as perhaps the most influential art critic ever to have lived. His interests ranged far wider than just art--he wrote on education, nature, architecture, history, aesthetics, economics, and the creation of true wealth. His impassioned critiques have become even more relevant today, as economic and environmental crises make the creation of a just society increasingly important and difficult. This comprehensive biography explores both the life and thought of Ruskin, situating him in the social, economic, and aesthetic world that he transformed. Illustrated with Ruskin's own paintings and photographs, this is an intriguing look at a man whose mind and thoughts continue to influence even today.
