Artist, art critic, educator, social thinker and true polymath, John Ruskin (1819-1900) devoted his life to the pursuit of knowledge. To mark the bicentenary of his birth, this new exhibition produced by Two Temple Place, Museums Sheffield and the Guild of St George, celebrates the legacy and enduring relevance of Ruskin’s ideas and vision. John Ruskin: The Power of Seeing brings together over 190 paintings, drawings, daguerreotypes, metal work, and plaster casts to illustrate how Ruskin’s attitude to aesthetic beauty shaped his radical views on culture and society. The exhibition showcases significant objects from Sheffield’s Guild of St 2019George Ruskin Collection whilst also drawing on the rich collections of many other regional and national public museums and galleries, including The Ashmolean; The Fitzwilliam; The Ruskin Library, Lancaster; Leeds Museums and Art Gallery; Tate; Watts Gallery – Artists’ Village; and the William Morris Gallery. The exhibition is curated by Louise Pullen, Ruskin Curator at Museums Sheffield, who will lead our tour of the exhibition. At Two Temple Place, London WC2R 3BD. £20. Booking required.*
