The Power of Seeing

Exhibition at Two Temple Place

Two Temple Place is a magnificent Neo-Gothic mansion situated near London’s Victoria Embankment. Completed in 1895 as the estate office of William Waldorf Astor, and run today by the charity the Bulldog Trust, the building serves as a venue showcasing publicly owned art from regional collections.

Marking the bicentenary of the birth of John Ruskin, The Power of Seeing celebrates the legacy and enduring relevance of his ideas and vision. Artist, art critic, educator, social thinker and true polymath, he devoted his life to the pursuit of knowledge.

The exhibition brings together over 190 paintings, drawings, daguerreotypes, metal work and plaster casts to illustrate how Ruskin’s attitude to aesthetic beauty shaped his radical views on culture and society. Showcased are significant objects from Sheffield’s Guild of St George Ruskin Collection, and also from the rich collections of both regional and national public museums and galleries.

Temple Place is situated off the Victoria Embankment, and the venue is only a stone’s throw from Temple Underground Station.
