The first detailed study of the influence of John Ruskin's travels in Tuscany on the development of his theories of art and architecture, this scholarly catalogue presents a diverse array of drawings, watercolors, prints, photographs and documents, including numerous works by the renowned British critic (1819-1900) recording architectural monuments and medieval and Renaissance paintings and sculptures in Florence, Pisa, Lucca and Siena. Extensive commentaries on the exhibited works are augmented by essays chronicling Ruskin's seven journeys through Tuscany and examining the evolution of his views on the region's art and culture as reflected in his Oxford lectures of the 1870s.
