    “The innocent eye”: John Ruskin Revealed, by Curator Christopher Newall.
    Auditorium

    In conjunction with the John Ruskin exhibition. Free with gallery admission.  In English with simultaneous interpretation and bilingual question period. 

    Christopher Newall, co-curator of the exhibition John Ruskin: Artist and Observer and one of the world’s leading Ruskin scholars, presents the lecture “The innocent eye”: John Ruskin Revealed in the auditorium on Saturday, February 15th, 2014 at 2pm.

    Since the beginning of his career in the mid-1800s, Englishman John Ruskin has been best known as an art historian, art critic, and teacher. But Ruskin was also a formidable draughtsman. Through a presentation of works selected from the exhibition, Christopher Newall will address the relationship between John Ruskin’s drawings and his intellectual preoccupations and changing emotional states. Ruskin’s drawings were intended as documents. He made them not as works of art, but as tools to record for future reference the appearances of buildings, landscapes, and details of architecture and nature. But Newall will show that there is something more: in spite of his “innocent eye”, John Ruskin’s drawings open a window onto his feelings and describe the emotional extremes he experienced.
