JOHN RUSKIN AND PRE-RAPHAELITE LANDSCAPE PAINTING
This talk takes place in the Headley Lecture Theatre
And online on Zoom
Booking is required
With Christiana Payne, curator and art historian
This talk will present John Ruskin's ideas and his own landscape watercolours against the work of Pre-Raphaelite landscape painters, including John Brett, John William Inchbold and George Price Boyce. It marks our Pre-Raphaelites exhibition.
Ruskin is often credited with encouraging these artists to 'go to nature', but the artistic relationships were actually rather more complicated than they might appear.
The event will take place online and in-person at the Ashmolean.
Booking is essential and tickets are £7.
