The Ruskin Gallery

The Ruskin Gallery in Sheffield's Millennium Galleries, contains a unique collection of minerals, paintings, drawings, ornithological prints, Medieval manuscripts, books and architectural plastercasts assembled by John Ruskin. The collection is known as the Ruskin Collection.

Items on display range from the small to the large. The jewel like colours in a single peacock feather are picked up in watercolours displayed alongside. Detailed drawings of architectural features and landscape views illustrate the skill of the craftsman and the beauty of nature. The front of Rouen Cathedral is recreated in large panels enlarged from photographs taken by Ruskin.
