Ruskin at 200

On View:

28 January — 15 March 2019
Humanities Center Gallery, Serra Hall


John Ruskin (1819-1900) was the Victorian era’s most prominent art and social critic, a complex thinker and provocateur who remains controversial. In honor of his 200th birthday on February 8, 2019, the Humanities Center will stage an exhibition related to Ruskin’s cogent writings on nature, art, and society. Featuring artists Ruskin championed as well as vilified, the exhibition will explore the range of his influence on Victorian visual culture, including works by J.M.W. Turner, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, James McNeill Whistler, and William Morris
