Overview

Hilton's John Ruskin: the Early Years was published by YUP in 1985 and will be reissued in paperback this season. Following on from the first volume of his life of Ruskin, this second volume covers the years 1860 until his death in 1900. John Ruskin (1819-1900) is perhaps best known for his books on art criticism, The Seven Lamps of Architecture (1849) and The Stones of Venice (1853), but his contribution as an artist is significant as well. In fact, his landscapes and portraits, with their wildness and organic energy, echo many of his critical ideas. Ruskin disliked classicism's symmetry and order, preferring the rougher qualities of Gothic art. Likewise, he rejected machine-produced goods which he considered 'dishonest,' advocating craftsmanship. He came to be associated with the Arts & Crafts movement, along with William Morris. Ruskin founded a utopian arts and crafts community, putting his theory into practice.
