Born almost exactly 100 years apart, the American painter, Andrew Wyeth (1917–2009) and the British critic and amateur artist, John Ruskin (1819–1900) shared a life-long obsession for the close observation and finely rendered imagery of the world around them. This exhibition places the work of Andrew Wyeth and John Ruskin together for the first time, examining their varying approaches to interpreting the natural world.
