John Ruskin: The Argument of the Eye

Detail from the Pass of St Gottard by John Ruskin

In this lecture, author and cultural historian, Robert Hewison, presents an introduction to eminent Victorian art critic John Ruskin, and examines how encounters with significant works of art, by artists such as Fra Angelico, Giotto, Tintoretto, Veronese and Turner, formed major milestones in his career and influenced both his writing and thinking.
