Ruskin restored: further drawings and daguerreotypes from the HLF Conservation Project
A new selection from more than 400 drawings and watercolours by Ruskin conserved over the last three years, thanks to a substantial grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Also on show for the first time since their examination and conservation are many examples from the important collection of 125 historic early daguerreotypes bought or made by Ruskin in the 1840s and 1850s, including some of the earliest photographs ever taken in the Swiss Alps.
