MARSILIO EDITORI

Looking at Tintoretto with John Ruskin

A Venetian Anthology

By John Ruskin. Edited by Emma Sdegno.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Looking at Tintoretto with John Ruskin.'

For John Ruskin (1819–1900), the discovery of Tintoretto's (1519–94) works in 1845 was revelatory. His visit to the Scuola Grande di San Rocco that year would inspire Ruskin to write The Stones of Venice, beloved by writers from Proust to Henry James. On the 200th anniversary of Ruskin's birth and the 500th of Tintoretto's, Looking at Tintoretto with John Ruskin collects Ruskin's writings on Tintoretto alongside the very paintings that he rhapsodizes. At the center of the volume is Ruskin's "A Venetian Index," which leads the reader by the hand through the numerous sites of Tintoretto's work in Venice. In particular, his commentary on the state of art conservation in Venice will strike readers as a very modern concern. Looking at Tintoretto with John Ruskin invites the reader to experience the resonant influence that both icons continue to have today.

Celebrating Tintoretto through the eyes of John Ruskin

Celebrating Tintoretto through the eyes of John Ruskin

In celebration of the 500th anniversary of the birth of Venetian Renaissance master Jacopo Tintoretto, the National Gallery in Washington D.C. opens a major—and extremely rare—Tintoretto exhibition today, after a government-shutdown related delay. We're celebrating too, with several new books from new D.A.P. publisher Marsilio, including Tintoretto in Venice: A Guide, Tintoretto and Architecture (forthcoming in May), Art, Faith and Medicine in Tintoretto's Venice and Looking at Tintoretto with John Ruskin, an illustrated collection of the Victorian critic's writings on the artist. (This year happens to mark the 200th anniversary of Ruskin's birth as well.) Of "Visitation," pictured here, Ruskin writes, "A small picture, painted in his very best manner; exquisite in its simplicity, unrivaled in vigour, well preserved, and, as a piece of painting, certainly one of the most precious in Venice. Of course, it does not show any of his high inventive powers: nor can a picture of four middle-sized figures be made a proper subject of comparison with large canvases containing forty or fifty; but it is, for this very reason, painted with such perfect ease, and yet with no slackness either of affection or power, that there is no picture that I covet so much." continue to blog
