Mountain Glory: Ruskin’s ‘Modern Painters’ and the Swiss Alps

The fifth and final volume of Ruskin’s Modern Painters, his magisterial book of art history focusing on J.M.W. Turner and landscape painting, was published in 1860.  Like The Stones of Venice, it was largely illustrated with engravings after Ruskin’s own drawings and watercolours.  To mark the 150th anniversary, some of these will be shown along with other related works, concentrating on the Swiss Alps.

The Exhibition runs from 10 July to 26 September 2010.
