'BLACK WIND AND WHITE FIRE': RUSKIN IN SICILY, 1874

With Stephen Wildman, Emeritus Professor of History of Art, Lancaster University

John Ruskin’s visit to Sicily in the spring of 1874 was the furthest he ever travelled.  This talk will consider both his interest in its sights as well as a little-known personal attachment to Amy, daughter of Henry Yule, who had retired to Palermo in 1864.

This is a past event that has now taken place.
