John Ruskin was the leading English Art Critic of the Victorian Era who first came to attention with the writing of Modern Painters, an extended essay in defence of JMW Turner.  

Ruskin initially defined colour in painting as inferior to form but his long love affair with the work of Turner led hi, to a deeper understanding of the complexity of colour and its relation to our most profound experiences in both the natural world and in human creativity.

With particular emphasis on the handling of paint, Howard Hull explores the transformation of pigments into messengers of the soul.

Howard Hull has been the Director of Brantwood in Coniston, John Ruskin's former, since 1996. Since 2000 he has also been Director of the Ruskin Foundation and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and the Royal Geographical Society.
