How A Victorian Visionary Shapes The Way We Live, Work and See the World
Manchester Art Gallery
Saturday 8 June 2019, 2pm–3pm
Award-winning journalist Andrew Hill first saw Ford Madox Brown’s Work when he visited Manchester Art Gallery as a teenager. The painting inspired a lifelong interest in Victorian art and society , and spawned a play, articles – including a recreation of Work for the Financial Times – and his new book Ruskinland, about the life, ideas and lasting influence of John Ruskin.
In Ruskin’s bicentenary year, Hill will talk about how the prescient ideas of Ruskin, Brown and others can show us how to work and see better today. He will be available afterwards to sign copies of his book.
Free but please book via Eventbrite.
