17 January – 22 April 2011
This exhibition is the second in a series of four which will display all the Ruskin Library Daguerreotypes, now carefully conserved with the aid of a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The subjects of Tuscany were shown in 2010; those of Switzerland will be exhibited in January – April 2013, and of Venice and Verona at the same time in 2014.
In each case, the Daguerreotypes are displayed alongside other material from the Whitehouse Collection held in the Ruskin Library, under the care of the Ruskin Foundation. The largest single collection of Ruskin’s work in every medium, this includes major watercolours and drawings as well as manuscripts, books and other historic photographs.
