Description
In addition to founding the discipline of modern art criticism and rescuing J.M.W Turner from obscurity, John Ruskin (18191900) wrote prolifically, publishing more than 250 works. Among his many theories was the idea that each generation boasts just a few men of genius, who differ from their contemporaries both in social relations and in their attitudes toward knowledge and art. Collated here are the gems of Ruskin's theory, excerpted from his books The Stones of Venice, The Seven Lamps of Architecture, Mornings in Florence, and the Modern Painters series.
