John Ruskin born here

Birthplace of a English art critic and social thinker

Location: 54 Hunter Street, Holborn, WC1N

Description: John Ruskin (8 February 1819 - 20 January 1900) was an English art critic and social thinker, also remembered as a poet and artist.

His essays on art and architecture were extremely influential in the Victorian and Edwardian eras.

Ruskin first came to widespread attention for his support for the work of J. M. W. Turner and his defence of naturalism in art.

He subsequently put his weight behind the Pre-Raphaelite movement. His later writings turned increasingly to complex and personal explorations of the interconnection of cultural, social and moral issues, and were influential on the development of Christian socialism.
