Ruskin, John  (1819 – 1900)
English Art Critic and Writer. Born in London, England. He wrote several volumes on art, which expressed his belief that the contemporary painters of his time were better than the old "masters". He also attempted to inspire radical changes in the attitudes of art, religion and economics of his day. The Cromaine District Library owns a bas relief of Ruskin in the Community Room.
