Meet the Author

John Ruskin (1819–1900) art critic, architectural theorist, social reformer and climate warner, was one of the greatest and most influential voices of the 19th century, whose imagination and convictions laid many of the foundations of our own time. His greatest disciple is arguably William Morris (1834–1896), designer, poet, and socialist, who remains one of the most fascinating and lastingly important of the Victorians. Robert Hewison is the author of Ruskin on Venice. Tony Pinkney is the editor of We Met Morris.
