Lectures on art by John Ruskin( Book )
187 editions published between 1870 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,141 libraries worldwide
"Reflecting Ruskin's belief that art is not an isolated pursuit, but one intimately connected with all aspects of human life, Lectures on Art explores the relation of art to religion, morality, and practicality as well as the significance of line, light, and color. Presented at Oxford, in 1870, Ruskin's lectures were so popular that they had to be moved to a larger hall to accommodate the hundreds who flocked to them. A pioneer environmentalist, an important influence on Oscar Wilde and Marcel Proust, and a passionate and wide-ranging thinker, Ruskin's ideas continue to be of vital interest to art, literature, and cultural studies." "This edition includes a new introduction by Bill Beckley, a biography of Ruskin, and is the first to reproduce many of the artworks mentioned by Ruskin in the lectures."--Jacket

"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"--www.amazon.com
