A Ruskin Chronology by J. Bradley

By J. Bradley

The subject matter and scope of the Chronology specialize in the lifestyles (in naked define) and guides (in temporal order) of John Ruskin (1819-1900). As art-critic, social commentator, architectural student, geologist, botanist, water-colourist, lecturer, letter-writer and prose stylist, Ruskin stands forth as possibly the pre-eminent Victorian polymath. His advocacy of artwork and artists, his braveness within the face of adversarial, uninformed feedback and his enlightened compassionate perspectives of the human demonstrate Ruskin as 'not of an age yet for all time'. those attributes the Chronology endeavours to indicate.
