Mountains inspired and obsessed Ruskin his entire life. He wrote of them 'Mountains are to the rest of the body of the earth, what violent muscular action is to the body of man'. To him they were the evidence of the living nature of the earth. Childhood encounters of the Lake District and the Alps created an isatiable appetite to understand the geology and geomorphology of mountains. At the same time, his reading of Wordsworth and discovery of the artist JMW Turner led him to explore the spiritual power of the hills and the way in which art conveys this. Ruskin drew mountains throughout his life and possibly no artist or writer, before or since, has understood them so fully.
