Ruskin and His Contemporaries
World renowned scholar Robert Hewison celebrates the 200th anniversary of John Ruskin’s birth with Ruskin and His Contemporaries – a collection and guide of his ideals, opinions and values that made him one of the most important writers of the 19th century.
Exploring the Victorian writer’s life as a contemporary artist, critic and radical social thinker, it includes a selection of unpublished lectures and short pieces that delve into Ruskin’s exploration of European art, as well as religion and politics, which helped shape modern society as we know it.
The author examines the relationships between Ruskin and other influential figures of the era, like William Turner, Oscar Wilde and Victor Hugo who helped the artist to develop his ideas about the parallels between art and society.
