In 1895, English writer, philosopher, and art critic John Ruskin journeyed to Venice and was enthralled and overwhelmed by the power and majesty of the works of Venetian artist Jacopo Tintoretto. Many of Ruskin‘s most influential writings, including “Modern Painters” and “The Stones of Venice” were inspired by Tintoretto, and continue to shape how the Venetian master is viewed today. Ruskin‘s writings on Tintoretto, alongside full-color images of his most fantastic works, have been compiled in this anthology, a veritable tribute to one of Venice’s most esteemed artists of all time.
