A complex and often contradictory figure, John Ruskin stands as one of the most influential thinkers of the nineteenth century. A pioneering art critic and an accomplished draftsman, he believed that art had the power to transform society and that nature inspired the most meaningful art. Two centuries after his birth, this exhibition examines Ruskin’s legacy as a social reformer, ecological thinker, and educator.

Unto This Last: Two Hundred Years of John Ruskin features paintings, drawings, and manuscripts largely from collections at Yale University - the Yale Center for British Art and Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library - together representing one of the most important repositories of Ruskin’s work in the United States, much of which is to be exhibited in the UK for the first time.

The exhibition has been curated by three PhD Candidates in Yale University’s Department of the History of Art.
