John Ruskin: Art & Wonder

Study from ‘Edward Donovan’s Watercolours of Invertebrate Species’. Edward Donovan Watercolour, bodycolour and varnish on paper, about 1790-1800 Collection of the Guild of St George, Museums Sheffield
Wednesday 29 May 2019 - Sunday 15 September 2019

The second exhibition curated by Museums Sheffield as part of 2019’s Ruskin bicentenary celebrations, John Ruskin: Art & Wonder is rooted in the influential artist, critic and scholar's fascination with the marvels of the natural world.

Taking key themes explored in The Power of Seeing, now on at London’s Two Temple Place, as its starting point, Art & Wonder will go on to explore how Ruskin championed the joy that nature can bring to our lives and the sense of awe it can evoke within us.

Visitors will discover a breathtaking selection of botanical and ornithological studies alongside jewel-like geological specimens drawn from the Guild of St George's Ruskin Collection.

Exhibition supported by the Foyle Foundation, the Garfield Weston Foundation, the J.G. Graves Trust, the Sheffield Church Burgesses Trust and the Sheffield Town Trust.
