Giotto and His Works in Padua

Giotto and His Works in Padua


In Giotto and His Works in Padua, John Ruskin’s compelling set of reflections on Italian artist Giotto’s masterpieces showcase the acclaimed art critic’s passion for this subject.

Ruskin was an important figure in the 19th-century, redefining art criticism with his attention to detail, polemical and ekphrastic prose and the conviction with which he expressed his ideas. In this book, he utilises this signature style to present a compelling study on what it means to be a great artist, as well as providing an enriching read for students of art history. He explores the panels in Area Chapel and brings them to life, describing their many hidden details and how they demonstrate Giotto’s unrivalled genius.

First published between 1853 and 1860, this new edition fills each panel with vivid colour photography, adding a useful visual aid to Ruskin’s lyrical descriptions.
