Description

This drawing dates from Ruskin’s visit to Edinburgh in August 1838 and is one of only a few known drawings of the city. This may be the vignette which he drew with the intention of reproducing it in Praeterita, a plan which he later abandoned. It is drawn in his early style influenced by Samuel Prout.
