Glacier des Bois, Chamouni

Glacier des Bois, Chamouni

Ruskin travelled with his parents through France and Italy on a tour between autumn and winter 1840 and June of 1841. Working their way along the coast of Italy through Genoa, Lucca, Florence and Pisa they spent December in Rome before moving on to Naples early in January 1841. The return journey took them via Rome in March and  Florence, Venice, Milan, Geneva and through France to Calais and home. This exhibition brings together a vivid visual account of the Ruskin family travels.
