abstract

This research paper offers a preliminary analysis of the volume by John Ruskin “Aratra Pentelici” (1872), which contains five of the six lectures on sculpture he gave at Oxford in 1870. The article begins with an investigation of the structure of the volume, focusing on Ruskin’s views on the arts and customs of the ancient Greeks. The essay continues with an attempt to enucleate the influence of Winckelmann’s thought on Ruskin and the spread of the work of the English art historian in German culture, with particular reference to the work of the intellectual Charlotte Broicher. The article concludes by outlining a future study perspective, never attempted before, on Ruskin, as an original interpreter of the art of ancient Greece.
