Celebrating John Ruskin’s 200th birthday, York Art Gallery presents a major new exhibition, Ruskin, Turner & the Storm Cloud.
Exploring our relationship with the environment and questions about mental health, the exhibition features watercolours and drawings by the celebrated 19th-century artists, Ruskin and J M W Turner.
Running until 23 June 2019, the exhibition includes works on loan from museums including Tate, the Ashmolean and Manchester. Through new research, it reveals Ruskin’s response to Turner’s vision, together with his own experience of close looking at weather patterns, mountains and the built environment.
The exhibition is on show in all three Madsen galleries, and is included in the admission price to York Art Gallery.
