John Ruskin’s Daguerreotypes?

Thursday 30 March 2006

From an article in the UK Telegraph newspaper yesterday:

A small country firm of auctioneers has been left em­bar­rassed but elated after selling a box of photographs it valued at £80 for £75,000.

Today it has emerged that these photographs of Venice may have belonged to John Ruskin.

Prof Robert Hewison, a Ruskin Foundation trustee, said: “If these are Ruskin’s Venetian Daguerreotypes it is an amaz­ing and fantastic discovery. They are extremely important for the record of Venice as it was when Ruskin was there from 1849 to 1852.”
