Manner of John Ruskin - 1846 Graphite Drawing, The Weissenburg Bath House
DescriptionA fine late 19th Century graphite study in the manner of John Ruskin. The scene shows a mountain landscape, with a thick forest, partially obscuring a large bath house, nestled at the feet of the trees and mountains of Weissenburg, Germany. The artist has inscribed and dated to the lower right of the drawing in hand writing incredibly similar to John Ruskin's. The style and use of the graphite, too, is strikingly similar to Ruskin's own work. The date of this drawing would place this as being done at the height of Ruskin's career.
The drawing has been presented in a simple wood frame with wash-line mount.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including even discolouration. There are lines of mount burn at the top and bottom from previous framing and a small foxed spot in the upper left quadrant. There are two small tears at the lower edge which is slightly raised above the mount. The frame is in fine condition.
