literary classics author, literature, john ruskin, brantwood, coniston, lake district, artJohn Ruskin was born in London as the son of a wine merchant. He attended Oxford University and his first published work, was entitled the Poetry of Architecture.

As a Victorian art critic, he was friends with Joseph Turner the English romantic landscape artist, and championed his artwork through his books. By the end of the 1850’s John Ruskin moved his focus from art to politics, writing about social justice.

Much of his later life was spent in the Lake District, in a house called Brantwood, which is open to the public, and by the edge of Coniston Water.
