Ruskin loved birds. His illustrations of birds are both wonderfully aesthetic and scientifically realistic. Ruskin admired, analysed and tried to emulate (and surpass) the bird paintings of other artists, including the those by JMW Turner, which are comparatively little-known.

Join Prof. Tim Birkhead as he explores Ruskin’s ornithological artworks, his relationships with various other bird artists and his influence on ornithologists today.
