Hint: You can preview this book by clicking on "Preview" which is located under the cover of this book. About the author: John Ruskin (8 February 1819 – 20 January 1900) was... More > the leading English art critic of the Victorian era, also an art patron, draughtsman, watercolourist, a prominent social thinker and philanthropist. He wrote on subjects as varied as geology, architecture, myth, ornithology, literature, education, botany and political economy. His writing styles and literary forms were equally varied. Ruskin penned essays and treatises, poetry and lectures, travel guides and manuals, letters and even a fairy tale. The elaborate style that characterised his earliest writing on art was later superseded by a preference for plainer language designed to communicate his ideas more effectively. In all of his writing, he emphasised the connections between nature, art and society. Excerpt from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Ruskin< Less
