John Ruskin

Influential English art critic and artist. 1 page Autograph Letter Signed "JR." Ruskin provides a glimpse into his work by writing about the process and ideas behind his sketches, and about fellow artist Stodhart. He writes in his hand in full: "Please see about the Frame yourself--but there must be no black in it. I cannot use this shield, on account of the twisted crosses which public won't like. There is no more time now, so I have sent off a common sketch of my own which must do--but many thanks always. I will call as soon as I can. I have not forgotten Stodhart neither." Letter measures approximately 5x7" with a tape repair and light foxing not affecting text. In very good conditon.
