The elements of drawing : in three letters to beginners by John Ruskin( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Ruskin shaped generations of artists, art critics and historians' understanding of how art works. He was the preeminent critic of his time, and a fine artist in his own right. In The Elements of Drawing, Ruskin explains how to draw and how to look at the drawings of others, in a wonderful primer on line, tone, weight, color, and composition. Fully illustrated by the author, to demonstrate the techniques he describes, The Elements of Drawing was and is one of the all-time classics in art and art history. This edition is a facsimile reproduction of the original 1857 work, with all Ruskin's original art included, as well as his comprehensive list of resources and works any young artist should study

Lectures on art by John Ruskin( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The following lectures were the most important piece of my literary work done with unabated power, best motive, and happiest concurrence of circumstance. They were written and delivered while my mother yet lived, and had vividest sympathy in all I was attempting;--while also my friends put unbroken trust in me, and the course of study I had followed seemed to fit me for the acceptance of noble tasks and graver responsibilities than those only of a curious traveler, or casual teacher. Men of the present world may smile at the sanguine utterances of the first four lectures: but it has not been wholly my own fault that they have remained unfulfilled; nor do I retract one word of hope for the success of other masters, nor a single promise made to the sincerity of the student's labor, on the lines here indicated

The queen of the air : being a study of the Greek myths of cloud and storm by John Ruskin( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a unique 1869 take on Greek mythology, the influential Victorian-Edwardian sage considers the myth of the goddess Athena. Ruskin asks us to consider Athena in the heavens, the earth, and the heart" as a vital force in the material world channeled by those leading virtuous lives and also as the directress of the imagination and will."

The ethics of the dust by John Ruskin( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The following lectures were really given, in substance, at a girls' school (far in the country); which, in the course of various experiments on the possibility of introducing some better practice of drawing into the modern scheme of female education, I visited frequently enough to enable the children to regard me as a friend. The Lectures always fell more or less into the form of fragmentary answers to questions; and they are allowed to retain that form, as, on the whole, likely to be more interesting than the symmetries of a continuous treatise. Many children (for the school was large) took part, at different times, in the conversations; but I have endeavored, without confusedly multiplying the number of imaginary speakers, to represent, as far as I could, the general tone of comment and inquiry among young people
The two paths by John Ruskin( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The following addresses, though spoken at different times, are intentionally connected in subject; their aim being to set one or two main principles of art in simple light before the general student, and to indicate their practical bearing on modern design. The law which it has been my effort chiefly to illustrate is the dependence of all noble design, in any kind, on the sculpture or painting of Organic Form. This is the vital law; lying at the root of all that I have ever tried to teach respecting architecture or any other art. It is also the law most generally disallowed

Subtitled Being Simple Studies on Christian Art for English Travellers," Ruskin uses this 1877 work to advise pilgrims to Italy on what works of art to see during a limited time. His casual stroll conducts readers through the gates and basilicas of the city to ponder the genius of Giotto, Ghirlandajo, Boticelli, and others
