John Ruskin Exhibition in Sheffield

This is likely to be of great interest to William Morris fans.  There is a fascinating exhibition entitled  Force of Nature: Picturing Ruskin’s Landscapes which is on display at Museums Sheffield, until Sunday 23rd June, 3013.   John Ruskin, (William Morris’ great inspiration and friend), was, like Morris himself, a truly remarkable Victorian.  Ruskin’s influence on Victorian society was wide-ranging and profound and still reverberates through our era.
