Study of a Wild Rose Greetings Card


The Victorian art critic and polymath John Ruskin (1819-1900) was the first Slade Professor of Fine Art at the University of Oxford.

During his two terms as Professor (1869-1877 and 1883-1885), he taught his students to draw as a way of educating them in how to look at art and the world around them, believing that 'To see clearly is poetry, prophecy, and religion - all in one.' The drawing school which he endowed is today's Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art.

The watercolour & bodycolour image shown on this greeting card, Study of Wild Rose, was first produced in July 1871.
