Ruskin could not resist the wonder he felt at the ability of the earth to form itself into crystalline treasures and spectacular mountain ranges. He set himself to understand the processes of change that governed the earth and from this understanding he developed many of his principles for life.
This talk, by Brantwood Director Howard Hull, is a precursor to a new permanent display about Ruskin’s geology which is to be created at Brantwood. This will feature over 2,000 of the finest mineral specimens from Ruskin’s core geological collection as well as his manuscript catalogues. The collection was acquired by Brantwood earlier this year and hitherto has been in private hands and has never been displayed in public.
Joint event with the Ruskin Foundation and Brantwood Trust.
