Lectures on Art by John Ruskin

Reflecting Ruskin's belief that art is not an isolated pursuit, but one intimately connected with all aspects of human life, Lectures on Art explores the relation of art to religion, morals, and practicality as well as the significance of line, light, and color.

This edition includes a new introduction by Bill Beckley, a widely exhibited artist who teaches semiotics at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.

About the Author

John Ruskin (1819-1900) was the most influential art critic of the nineteenth century. A watercolorist, a botanist, a moralist, a sensualist, a socialist, an economist, a Romantic, a prophet, a priest, and a poet, his writings integrate the aesthetic with moral purpose and ecology. He established his reputation with The Stones of Venice and his masterwork, Modern Painters, then held the Slade Professorship of Art at Oxford University from 1870 to 1878.
