RUSKIN'S TREES

ruskin
Friday, February 8, 2019 -
6:00pm to 7:00pm
Oxford University Museum of Natural History, Parks Road, OX1 3PW.
 

This lecture explores Ruskin's lifelong love of trees, from the idyllic garden at his family home in Herne Hill to his Lake District estate at Brantwood.  Ruskin looked at trees with an eye trained by painting, a mind coloured by literature, a heart lifted by a sense of the divine manifest in the natural world.  Above all, he looked at trees as trees and urged his audiences to see the world afresh.
