Riassunto: This book explores the importance of Venetian Renaissance paintings in the writings and political theories of John Ruskin. To date, there has been very little discussion of the role played by these paintings in Ruskin's life and thought. Ruskin clearly invested a great deal of both political and personal significance in artworks by Tintoretto, Titian, Carpaccio, and other Venetian painters, as demonstrated by repeated references to these artists in his social writings as well as in his art criticism. In this book, the author examines particular Venetian paintings, and relate their iconography and pictorial components to themes and motifs in Ruskin's writings. He argues that, in these Venetian paintings, Ruskin found inspiration for his conceptualization of an ideal society, in which the various classes exist harmoniously under the laws of justice, obedience, and cooperation. This book will appeal to scholars of Ruskin and to art historians interested in nineteenth-century receptions of Italian Renaissance art.
Review: "[T]his book is chock full of fine and important arguments, arguments which emerge as Professor McKeown practices the scholar's techne to near-perfection, enriching, as his pages turn, our view of Ruskin, his life, and his work. He is to be commended for the effort." (Prof. James L. Spates Hobart and William Smith Colleges)"
