John Ruskin (1819-1900) was an English art collector, art and social critic and watercolourist. Between 1870 and 1878 he was Slade Professor of Art at Oxford University. In 1871 he established the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art. Ruskin is best known as one of the earliest supporters and defenders of the Pre-Raphaelite Movement. He was a major patron of both Rossetti and Millais. Influenced by the watercolour collection of his father, particularly the works of J.M.W. Turner, Ruskin's own work was concerned with landscape and natural phenomena.
