Modern Painters. Volume V / John Ruskin (1873)

£29.99

Product description

A 1873 publication of Volume V of John Ruskin's work on Modern Painters. Collectively the five volumes by John Ruskin argue that recent painters emerging from the tradition of the picturesque are superior in the art of landscape to the old masters, and that art should devote itself to the accurate documentation of nature. Volume V completes his work with parts on Leaf Beauty, on Cloud Beauty, and of Ideas of Relation. John Ruskin was a leading art critic of the Victorian Era and was hugely influential in the later half of the 19th century.

Published by Smith, Elder and Co., London, in 1873. Faded green cloth covers with very faded gilt lettering on the spine. A little foxing inside, and some pages are a little loosened but overall the vast majority remain tight. Otherwise in very good condition for its age. Size: 18 x 27 cms. Contains numerous black and white plates. (Volumes I to IV are NOT available from this seller).
