John Ruskin

Author Code: EJRK

Born: Feb. 8, 1819 - London, England

Died: Jan. 20, 1900 - Coniston, Lancashire, England

Educated at Christ Church College, Oxford, Ruskin travelled to Switzerland and Italy on many occasions. He became a champion of the Gothic Revival in art and began publishing his five-volume series, Modern Painters, in 1843 (1843-1860). Ruskin was also involved in political economy and did much through his writing and lectures to improve the quality of life of the working classes in England. His other works on art include The Seven Lamps of Architecture (1849) and The Stones of Venice (1851-1853 3 Vols.). His work on political economy include Undo This Last (1862), Time and Tide (1867), A Joy For Ever (1880) and Fors Clavigera (1871-1884). Ruskin also wrote numerous essays and even some fairy tales. A manic depressive, he spent the majority of his later years at his home in the Lake District.
