Coming of Age: Ruskin’s Drawings from the 1840-41 Tour

Ruskin, aged 21, travelled with his parents through France and Italy on a tour lasting from September 1840 to June 1841.  Working their way along the coast of Italy through Genoa, Florence and Pisa they spent December in Rome before moving on to Naples early in January 1841.  The return journey took them via Rome in March to Florence and Venice, and back through France.  Using the young Ruskin’s spectacular drawings, this exhibition provides a vivid visual account of the Ruskin family’s travels.
