Catalogue Note

In 1840, following a bout of poor health, Ruskin was encouraged by his doctors to take a holiday in Italy. In September of that year he set out with his parents on a tour which was to last nine months. During the course of his travels, Ruskin made a series of large drawings on blue paper, near Rome, in the eternal city itself, in Naples, at Amalfi, Salerno and elsewhere. The present drawing, shows the Chigi Palace and Bernini’s church of Santa Maria dell’ Assunzione at Ariccia in the Roman Campagna.
