About the Author

Andrew Ballantyne is Professor of Architecture at Newcastle University and the author of Architecture: A Very Short Introduction(2002) and Tudoresque: In Pursuit of the Ideal Home (with Andrew Law, Reaktion, 2011).


"It is good to have a new book about John Ruskin (1819-1900) that is short, informative, and accessible. . . . Architectural historian Ballantyne sets out the essentials of Ruskin's life--the early years with his adoring parents, the notoriety of Modern Painters, the disastrous marriage to Effie Gray, the commitment to museums and workers' education, the Whistler suit, and the final mental collapse--while providing authoritative analysis of his connection to picturesque theory, Turner's genius, the Pre-Raphaelites, and the Gothic Revival. . . . Overall, an attractive, well-written introduction to the life and thought of one of the great Victorians. . . . Recommended."
