Force of Nature: Picturing Ruskin’s landscape

iphone-20121220112515-0

This exhibition, at the Millenium Gallery in Sheffield, looks at the theme of landscape, all through the eyes of John Ruskin.

Throughout the mid 1800s, Ruskin gained fame by writing about art, architecture, geology and landscapes. By the 1870s Ruskin’s interest had turned to social policy, and he founded the Guild of St George with the aim of making England a better place for the everyday worker. With the help of his Guild, Ruskin put together this collection to display in Sheffield as a creative and educational tool for Sheffield’s metalworkers.

The exhibition is permanent and rotates items from the extensive collection frequently.
