John Ruskin was a significant Victorian author and critic. A precocious youth, he was largely self-educated until he entered Oxford. He gained attention through his somewhat radical writing on arts and architecture, where his moral standards amd theories of relationships helped revive interest in the arts and encourage younger artists, such as the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. He went on to become an important commentator on social issues, equating the quality of art to the quality of culture. Although an excellent prose stylist and influential commentator, his personal life was troubled.

Born on February 8, 1819, he published his first articles in Architectural Magazine under the pseudonym Kataphusin in 1837.

John Ruskin (1819-1900) was an author, art historian, and architectural critic. He was born in London to strict Calvinist parents and traveled frequently with his mother, father, and nurse on business trips to Flanders, Germany, and Switzerland. By the age of fifteen, Ruskin was composing poetry, dramas, and romances in imitation of Shakespeare, Pope and Byron. Though his early schooling was irregular and his time at Oxford was interrupted by two years of poor health, Ruskin came to be highly regarded as a social theorist. Strongly influenced by the teachings of Thomas Carlyle, he was particularly interested in the ways in which art might both restore an aesthetic component to production and induce an appreciation of higher values. His reputation as one of the leading critics and architectural historians of his day was established with the publication of the first volume of The Stones of Venice in 1851, and his publications until the early 1870s were quite prolific. Elected Slade Professor of Art at the University of Oxford in 1869, Ruskin lectured there for ten years until disease of the brain forced him to resign in 1879. His last decade was spent in retirement at the cottage he had acquired at Brantwood, Coniston.

Biography

John Ruskin was born February 8, 1819 in London. He graduated from Oxford in 1843. After gaining wide recognition as an author, artist, and social reformer, he moved from London to Brantwood, Coniston Water in 1872 where he remained until his death.

He was elected first Slade professor of art at Oxford in 1870 and held the post until 1878 and then again from 1883 to 1884. From 1878 until his death Ruskin was plagued with recurring brain attacks. He made many trips abroad, several in an attempt to cure himself of these brain fevers.

However, by 1889 his literary career was at an end. He died January 20, 1900 and was buried at Coniston beside his old friend, Susan Beever. This friendship had begun in 1874 and a voluminous correspondence was carried on between the two until Miss Beever's death in 1893.

From the guide to the John Ruskin Papers, 1870-1909, (The Huntington Library)

John Ruskin was born on February 8, 1819, in London to John James Ruskin, a vintner, and his wife (and first cousin), Margaret Cox. A highly intelligent and creative child, Ruskin was already writing and drawing at an early age. An anecdote about a fictional piece written at the age of seven reveals much about the traits that marked Ruskin's later approach to his work: "The [seven year old Ruskin]...wished to control all aspects of book production: plates, print styles, title-page, and so on are all given detailed attention" (Batchelor, 17).

Anxious about his health and his social surroundings, John James and Margaret Ruskin kept their son, who was their only child, largely out of school and had him tutored at home. He received education in typical academic subjects, but was also given art lessons in childhood and youth. Although his parents eventually enrolled him in school when he was fourteen, Ruskin was soon pulled out of this formalized education in order to allow him to travel to Europe with them. As a teenager, Ruskin was still closely watched over by and spent most of his time with his mother and father. He seems to have had few friends his age, although he developed a passionate infatuation with the daughter of one of John James Ruskin's business partners. This romantic attachment was not fully mutual, and a matter of concern for Ruskin's parents, who ultimately did not want their son to marry a Catholic.

Determined to give their son the best education possible and to see him progress upwards in society, the Ruskins sent John to Oxford in January of 1837. In a move that would have been unusual in any other family, Mrs. Ruskin accompanied her son to college, finding lodgings separate from those of her son, but sharing most of her meals with him and keeping a watchful eye on his academic and social activities. Ruskin found a measure of social and intellectual camraderie with his fellow students at Oxford, although he was something of an odd man out, already being a published poet and critic at this time, and not possessed of a rambunctious temperament like many of his peers. When Ruskin suffered a lung hemorhrage in 1840, his parents withdrew him from the university and the family embarked on European travels meant to help Ruskin recuperate. He would eventually earn his degree in 1842.

It was after his years at Oxford that two very important and very different developments occurred in Ruskin's life. For one, he began the work that would eventually become his famous multi-volume Modern Painters . Inspired by J.M.W. Turner's art, and seeking to defend the painter against his critics, Ruskin's work took a philosophical and art historical approach to painting in general and, especially in the first volume, to Turner in particular. It was also around this time that Ruskin first met Effie Gray, who would eventually become his wife in April, 1848. The marriage was to last six years, during which time Ruskin published The Stones of Venice, a work about Venetian architecture. When J.M.W. Turner died in 1851, Ruskin hoped, as one of the painter's executors, to be involved in planning an exhibition hall at the National Gallery for Turner's works. This project did not materialize, and Ruskin ultimately seems to have devoted much of his energies in the 1850s into getting many of Turner's works into print, an enterprise that would involve his collaboration with Thomas Lupton.

In 1854, Effie left her husband, and the dissolution of their marriage (on the grounds of non-consummation) was to send Ruskin's personal life and public image into turmoil. Despite this crisis, Ruskin's professional productivity does not seem to have been deeply affected during the 1850s. Throughout this decade, Ruskin was involved with the completion of Modern Painters, the publication of The Harbours of England (a collection of engravings after Turner's works), and the organization of thousands of Turner items at the National Gallery. His letters to Thomas Lupton, the engraver with whom he would collaborate for The Harbours of England and on some of his books, make clear his dedication to his various projects and his insistence on their perfection.

In the 1860s and 1870s, Ruskin continued his rather heavy pace of work, turning some of his thinking to social issues outside of art. In these years he experienced crises in his psychological health (mental illness ran in his family) which often accompanied the waxing and waning of his relationship with Rose La Touche, a young woman with whom Ruskin had fallen in love while she was still a child, and whom he hoped eventually to marry. Ruskin's proposals were deferred and ultimately rejected, with his past failed marriage to Effie coming back to haunt him in the form of fears and doubts on the part of Rose's parents. When Rose La Touche eventually died in 1875, Ruskin was grief-stricken.

Despite his continuing personal crises, Ruskin's professional life made steady progress in the mid to late Victorian years, with a Slade Professorship being awarded to him in 1869. In the 1880s, Ruskin's mental health began to decline more seriously, however, and he retired somewhat from public life, working on autobiographical writings in addition to works on contemporary social issues. Despite his frailties and the publicity of some of his major personal problems, Ruskin's works established him as a well-respected art critic and political thinker, making him one of Victorian England's most valued minds. By the time of his death in 1900, his contributions ranged across many fields and influenced those in public service, in the arts, and in educational spheres.

Thomas Lupton : Thomas Goff Lupton was born in 1791 and apprenticed to engraver and painter George Clint in 1805. Lupton's portrait drawings were exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1811 and 1820. After his apprenticeship with Clint, Lupton went on to engrave pieces for J.M.W. Turner, beginning a close working relationship and friendship. Lupton married his wife Susannah on May 30, 1818. They had six sons and one daughter; their son Nevil would help his father with his engraving business and went on to become an admired landscape painter, winning the Royal Academy's Turner Medal in 1857. According to the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Lupton was instrumental in the introduction of "steel plates for engraving," in place of traditional copperplate.

Some of Lupton's most significant engravings date from the 1830s and 1840s, the decades marking the peak of his career. As DNB records, "[h]is finest single plates include Wellington Surveying the Field of Waterloo after Benjamin Robert Haydon (1841; original painting, 1839, NPG); Lord Byron after Thomas Phillips (1824; original painting, 1814, Gov. Art Coll., British embassy, Athens); and The Eddystone Lighthouse (1824; original watercolour untraced) and Sunrise, Whiting Fishing at Margate (1825; original watercolour untraced) after Turner."

Lupton collaborated with John Ruskin on a number of works, including The Harbours of England, which was a reworking of the 1826 Ports of England on which Lupton had collaborated directly with Turner. Lupton would also make engravings for parts of Ruskin's Modern Painters, among other works of the 1850s. Their friendship would continue until Lupton's death in 1873.
