In our age of immediacy, John Ruskin encourages us to linger. This visionary artist and critic transforms our understanding of the natural world and our built environment. In the blink of an eye, he leads us from the intense blue petal of a gentian to an Alp, a Cathedral. With Ruskin as our guide, Suzanne Fagence Cooper encourages us to see the wonders of our interconnected world and talks about the ongoing relevance of Ruskin today.

Dr Suzanne Fagence Cooper is author of ‘To see clearly: Why Ruskin matters’ and one of her previous books is ‘Effie Gray‘. She is Research Curator for 'Ruskin, Turner & the Storm Cloud', an exhibition at York Art Gallery commemorating the 200th anniversary of Ruskin's birth.

This event has been organised by the London Fundraising Committee Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
