to Henry and Emily Swan by John Ruskin( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Letters to Henry Swan and his wife Emily. The first 20 letters, written in 1855, 1856, 1865, 1873, and 1875, concern Swan's art studies and illustration work for Ruskin. The bulk of the letters deal with the Museum of St. George: its establishment, building, furnishings, collections, displays, cataloging, finances, and abortive plans for moving to other sites. There is also much about other aspects of the Guild of St. George, especially the purchase of land and buildings for its agricultural communities. The letters also include many references to Ruskin's travels and writings, especially Fors clavigera, and to his health and the Swans' family life. Also included are two letters to Ruskin, one from Henry Swan and one from Frederic J. Shields. Each letter is followed by a typed transcript with hand-rubricated initial capitals and occasional notes. Three volumes include typescript introductions signed by William S. Allen, son of Ruskin's publisher George Allen
Correspondence by Frederic Shields( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Twenty three letters by Shields (ca. 1873-1909) together with sixteen letters received (1877-1909), mostly from British artists. Included are seventeen letters from Shields to Herbert P. Horne (ca. 1886-1897), editor of the "Century Guild Hobby Horse", a journal dedicated to the revitalization of the decorative arts. Shields discusses his relations with William Holman Hunt and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, the poetry of Christina Rossetti, Horne's work, and the reproduction of works of art in the journal. In a later letter (1908), Shields acknowledges his debt to Rossetti, noting "Lovely was he, though weak and inconsistent as myself." Letters received include three from Sir Edward Poynter (1891, 1894), two from G.F. Watts (1891, 1901), two from Sir Hubert Von Herkomer (1877), and letters from Walter Crane (1909) and Noel Paton (1896). One of Poynter's letters (1891) mentions Burne-Jones and Millais. Watts states that, because of his lack of independent means, he has been obliged to paint portraits in order to live and this has impeded his true aspirations (1891). He also discusses Shields' designs for murals for the Chapel of the Ascension (1901). Herkomer's letters relate to lithography and his portrait of Richard Wagner and Paton's praises Shield's "Angel of the Chimes", mentions Eaton Hall, and comments on the death of Frederic Leighton.
