Ruskin Cabinet Series What is this?

  • This visual browsing tool displays your results as they were organised in Ruskin’s cabinet series:
  • John Ruskin built up a collection of artworks for his drawing classes. He divided the works into four main series: Standard, Reference, Educational and Rudimentary.
  • Each item was placed in a numbered frame, and the frames were arranged in cabinets, so that they all had a specific position in the collection – although Ruskin moved items about as his ideas changed. For more details, see Ruskin’s Catalogues.
