Giotto and his works in Padua

by John Ruskin | 22 March 2018
Category: Artists
The Arena Chapel in Padua was completed in 1303; Giotto, then considered the pre-eminent painter in Italy, was commissioned to paint it in 1306. The resulting fresco cycle, detailing the history, birth, life and death of Christ, ranks among the greatest artworks ever created. John Ruskin helped redefine art criticism in the 19th century through his attention to detail, his playful and engaging prose, and the conviction with which he discussed the subjects that mattered most to him. Ruskin's ekphrastic writing became a way for readers to approach the experience of looking at great art without actually seeing it in person.
