Product description


`The critic's love of Venice is eloquently examined in this handsomely illustrated book.' --Sunday Times, 17th December 2010

`Assiduously researched, handsomely grateful [to Hewison] for re-creating Ruskin's Venetian pilgrimage with such discreet sympathy and deep learning.'
--Kevin Jackson, Sunday Times, 10th December 2009

`The whole spectacular achievement does honour to its theme.' --Jonathon Keates, Literary Review, February 2010

`Hewison's thought has developed and matured until reaching the fully rounded work of scholarship this book represents.'
--Stephen Wildman, The Art Newspaper No.210, February 2010

`Hewison resurrects this passionate thinker and charismatic writer with the care, and love, that is surely due.'
--Jonathon Glancey, The Guardian, 20th March 2010
