"Unto this last" : four essays on the first principles of political economy by John Ruskin( )

336 editions published between 1800 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 3,658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unto This Last is an essay on economy by John Ruskin, critical of the 18th and 19th century capitalist economists. When first published as four magazine articles in 1860 they were, in the words of Ruskin himself, "very violently criticized" and the publisher was forced to halt publication. But Ruskin persevered and released the four articles in this book form in 1862. Gandhi read Unto This Last in 1904 and it had a huge impact on his social and economic philosophy, with Gandhi making an immediate decision to live according to Ruskin's teachings
Modern painters by John Ruskin( Book )

555 editions published between 1800 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 3,440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ruskin, the Victorian-era British writer whose work had a profound influence on artists, art historians, and writers both during his life and after, wrote Modern Painters in five separate volumes published between 1843 and 1860. It is, among other things, an evaluation of individual painters, a religious statement, a discourse on nature, and a splendid example of Victorian prose style. The original text has been abridged into this one-volume edition, which preserves the essential points of Ruskin's argument and provides the modern reader with a satisfying sample of Ruskin's justly acclaimed prose

Lectures on art by John Ruskin( Book )

202 editions published between 1870 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reflecting Ruskin's belief that art is not an isolated pursuit, but one intimately connected with all aspects of human life, Lectures on Art explores the relation of art to religion, morality, and practicality as well as the significance of line, light, and color. Presented at Oxford, in 1870, Ruskin's lectures were so popular that they had to be moved to a larger hall to accommodate the hundreds who flocked to them. A pioneer environmentalist, an important influence on Oscar Wilde and Marcel Proust, and a passionate and wide-ranging thinker, Ruskin's ideas continue to be of vital interest to art, literature, and cultural studies." "This edition includes a new introduction by Bill Beckley, a biography of Ruskin, and is the first to reproduce many of the artworks mentioned by Ruskin in the lectures."--Jacket
Fors clavigera: letters to the workmen and labourers of Great Britain by John Ruskin( Book )

167 editions published between 1800 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 1,217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fors Clavigera (1871-1884), Ruskin's serial 'Letters to the Workmen of Great Britain', is his most controversial and personal text. 'I neither wish to please, nor displease you; but to provoke you to think', Ruskin told his readers." "Discursive, angry, and uncompromising, Fors is now seen as the most innovative and in many ways the most modern work of his later years. Interest in its extraordinary achievement has steadily expanded. Tim Hilton's biography identifies Fors Clavigera as 'Ruskin's masterpiece'. The lack of an accessible edition has obstructed the testing of Hilton's claim." "This selected edition of Fors Clavigera is the first since the Library edition completed its 3-volume text (long out of print, and now often hard to find) in 1907. It provides an extensive and carefully chosen selection of the most challenging writing in Fors, including several complete letters and sequences. The densely allusive text is elucidated with full annotation, and the edition is provided with a critical introduction, bibliographical notes, and suggestions for further reading. Ruskin's original illustrations, essential for the understanding of his argument, are reproduced."--BOOK JACKET

"Can drawing--sound, honest representation of the world as the eye sees it, not tricks with the pencil or a few "effects"--be learned from a book?

John Ruskin shaped generations of artists, art critics and historians' understanding of how art works. He was the preeminent critic of his time, and a fine artist in his own right. In The Elements of Drawing, Ruskin explains how to draw and how to look at the drawings of others, in a wonderful primer on line, tone, weight, color, and composition. Fully illustrated by the author, to demonstrate the techniques he describes, The Elements of Drawing was and is one of the all-time classics in art and art history. This edition is a facsimile reproduction of the original 1857 work, with all Ruskin's original art included, as well as his comprehensive list of resources and works any young artist should study

"The following addresses, though spoken at different times, are intentionally connected in subject; their aim being to set one or two main principles of art in simple light before the general student, and to indicate their practical bearing on modern design. The law which it has been my effort chiefly to illustrate is the dependence of all noble design, in any kind, on the sculpture or painting of Organic Form. This is the vital law; lying at the root of all that I have ever tried to teach respecting architecture or any other art. It is also the law most generally disallowed"
