RUSKIN'S Good Looking! Absence and presence in John Ruskin's clothing is a new exhibition of drawings by Sarah Casey, on show at Coniston's Brantwood. Ruskin thought of architectural and natural ornament as forms of dress which simultaneously cloak and reveal. References to textiles and clothing occur throughout his work and he famously inspired the local linen industry with the production of Ruskin Lace. Sarah applies Ruskin's ideas about drawing, looking and appearance to explore the details of his own clothes. Telephone 015394-41396.
