Gallery Talk: The Last Ruskinians (American Art History)

When: Saturday, June 30, 11:30 AM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Event Description: Melissa Renn, curatorial assistant of American Painting, Sculpture, and Decorative Arts at the Harvard University Art Museum will discuss the current exhibition: "The Last Ruskinians: Charles Eliot Norton, Charles Herbert Moore, and Their Circle"

This exhibition of approximately 60 works explores the influence of John Ruskin on a group of American watercolorists, most with Harvard connections, who were active during the late 19th and early 20th centuries and whose small nature studies and copies after art and architecture were painted with technical precision in rich color.

The exhibition presents a fine group of Ruskin's own drawings and watercolors, and those of two British painters he greatly admired, James M. W. Turner and William Henry Hunt. Works by such important Americans as Henry Roderick Newman, Francesca Alexander, and Joseph Lindon Smith are included. The show also brings to light the work of Charles Herbert Moore, a distinguished artist who became the first director of the Fogg Art Museum.

The exhibit reveals Ruskin's significant effects on taste, collecting, and art instruction, with special emphasis on the role of his close friend and emissary in America, Charles Eliot Norton, Harvard?s first professor of fine arts.

Programs in the galleries are free to Members of the Harvard University Art Museums and are open to the public with the price of Art Museums admission.
