Turner and Ruskin: A Celebration Suzanne Fagence Cooper Wednesday 08 May 2019

John Ruskin loved Venice, the Alps and the Lakes . He made daily studies of the dawn, and watched horrified as Victorian industrialisation polluted the clouds and rivers captured by his ‘Ideal Modern Painter’ – JMW Turner.

Suzanne Fagence Cooper  studied History at Oxford University, and Art History at the Courtauld Institute, and at Christie’s Education. She was a Curator and Research fellow at the V & A for twelve years, and is currently Research Curator at York Art Gallery for a new exhibition ‘ Turner, Ruskin and the Storm Cloud’, which opens this spring.
