[190] The sociologist and media theorist David Gauntlett argues that Ruskin's notions of craft can be felt today in online communities such as YouTube and throughout Web 2.0. [208] Although Ruskin wrote about architecture in many works over the course of his career, his much-anthologised essay "The Nature of Gothic" from the second volume of The Stones of Venice (1853) is widely considered to be one of his most important and evocative discussions of his central argument. Volgens Ruskin en Morris was de decadentie van de toenmalige maatschappij te wijten aan de verbreking van de oude 'eenheid der kunsten ' die uitmondde in de suprematie van de Schone Kunsten op de toegepaste kunsten . A. Hobson, and the positivist Frederic Harrison. [117], Most controversial, from the point of view of the University authorities, spectators and the national press, was the digging scheme on Ferry Hinksey Road at North Hinksey, near Oxford, instigated by Ruskin in 1874, and continuing into 1875, which involved undergraduates in a road-mending scheme. Gradually it became too difficult for him to travel to Europe.

John James Ruskin helped to develop his son's Romanticism. Ruskin maintained that, unlike Turner, Old Masters such as Gaspard Dughet (Gaspar Poussin), Claude, and Salvator Rosa favoured pictorial convention, and not "truth to nature".

John Ruskin (Londen, 8 februari 1819 - Brantwood (Lancashire), 20 januari 1900) was een Engels criticus die vooral bekend werd door zijn werk als kunstcriticus en sociaalcriticus, maar ook herinnerd wordt als schrijver, dichter en getalenteerd aquarellist. [37] Their different personalities are thrown into sharp relief by their contrasting priorities. Presently there was a commotion in the doorway, and over the heads and shoulders of tightly packed young men, a loose bundle was handed in and down the steps, till on the floor a small figure was deposited, which stood up and shook itself out, amused and good humoured, climbed on to the dais, spread out papers and began to read in a pleasant though fluting voice.

What became the first volume of Modern Painters (1843), published by Smith, Elder & Co. under the anonymous authority of "A Graduate of Oxford", was Ruskin's answer to Turner's critics. [227] Others point to a definite pattern of "nympholeptic" behaviour with regard to his interactions with girls at a Winnington school.

[205] For Ruskin, art should communicate truth above all things. An incident where the Arts and Crafts guru William Morris had aroused the ire of Dr Bright, Master of University College, Oxford served to demonstrate Ruskin's charisma: William Morris had come to lecture on “Art and plutocracy” in the hall of University College. [96] Others were enthusiastic, including Ruskin's friend Thomas Carlyle, who wrote, "I have read your paper with exhilaration... such a thing flung suddenly into half a million dull British heads... will do a great deal of good.

One of his first actions was to support the housing work of Octavia Hill (originally one of his art pupils): he bought property in Marylebone to aid her philanthropic housing scheme. Theoria: Ruskin's 'theoretic' faculty – theoretic, as opposed to aesthetic – enables a vision of the beautiful as intimating a reality deeper than the everyday, at least in terms of the kind of transcendence generally seen as immanent in things of this world. "[211], For Ruskin, the "age" of a building was crucially significant as an aspect in its preservation: "For, indeed, the greatest glory of a building is not in its stones, not in its gold.

[76] As the Ruskin scholar Helen Gill Viljoen noted, Ruskin was increasingly critical of his father, especially in letters written by Ruskin directly to him, many of them still unpublished.[77]. Some say he went mad or fell into dementia; many say his later writings show signs of a troubled man. Ruskin's health was poor and he never became independent from his family during his time at Oxford. In middle age, and at his prime as a lecturer, Ruskin was described as slim, perhaps a little short,[164] with an aquiline nose and brilliant, piercing blue eyes. John Ruskin en William Morris wilden voornamelijk reageren tegen de lelijkheid van het moderne leven en de onmenselijkheid van de arbeid, ondermeer ten gevolge van de mechanisatie. Ruskin toured the continent with his parents again in 1844, visiting Chamonix and Paris, studying the geology of the Alps and the paintings of Titian, Veronese and Perugino among others at the Louvre. St. George's Mill was established at Laxey, Isle of Man, producing cloth goods. The most prolific collector of Ruskiniana was John Howard Whitehouse, who saved Ruskin's home, Brantwood, and opened it as a permanent Ruskin memorial. [137] (In the 1880s, in a venture loosely related to the Bibliotheca, he supported Francesca Alexander's publication of some of her tales of peasant life.) John Ruskin was born in London in 1819, the only son of a successful Scottish sherry merchant. The many twists and turns in the Museum's development, not least its increasing cost, and the University authorities' less than enthusiastic attitude towards it, proved increasingly frustrating for Ruskin. Ruskin's childhood was spent from 1823 at 28 Herne Hill (demolished c. 1912), near the village of Camberwell in South London. His last great work was his autobiography, Praeterita (1885–89)[152] (meaning, 'Of Past Things'), a highly personalised, selective, eloquent but incomplete account of aspects of his life, the preface of which was written in his childhood nursery at Herne Hill.

For Effie, Venice provided an opportunity to socialise, while Ruskin was engaged in solitary studies. [40] Praising Gothic ornament, Ruskin argued that it was an expression of the artisan's joy in free, creative work. Unto This Last (1860, 1862) marked the shift in emphasis. [1][2] His wife, Margaret Cock (1781–1871), was the daughter of a publican in Croydon. The Ruskin marriage was already fatally undermined as she and Millais fell in love, and Effie left Ruskin, causing a public scandal. [95] Ruskin's father also strongly disapproved. In 1869 werd Ruskin professor aan de Universiteit van Oxford en de Slade School of Fine Art. It provided him with an opportunity to study medieval art and architecture in France, Switzerland and especially Italy. Ruskin's book in celebration of the sea, The Harbours of England, revolving around Turner's drawings, was published in 1856. Morris at any time was choleric and his face flamed red over his white shirt front: he probably thought he had conceded enough by assuming against his usage a conventional garb. "Of Queens' Gardens" (supporting a school fund) focused on the role of women, asserting their rights and duties in education, according them responsibility for the household and, by extension, for providing the human compassion that must balance a social order dominated by men. While John Ruskin declares that “every man in a Christian kingdom ought to be equally well educated” (11:263, Ruskin’s emphasis), he did not believe in the equality of all men. He was buried five days later in the churchyard at Coniston, according to his wishes. [113], In 1871, John Ruskin founded his own art school at Oxford, The Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art.
