Ruskin’s View

Posted: Friday, 17 January 2014

 

Turner (1775-1851) painted the River Lune at a spot now called ‘Ruskin’s View’. John Ruskin (1819-1900), a lover of Turner’s work, influential English critic, social theorist, painter and poet, was so impressed by the picture, that he was inspired to eulogise: ‘I do not know in all my own country, still less in France or Italy, a place more naturally divine’. Ruskin’s view is accessed through the churchyard.
