John Ruskin: Art & Wonder
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.
