The subject and scope of the chronology specialise in the existence (in naked define) and guides (in temporal order) of John Ruskin (1819-1900). As art-critic, social commentator, architectural pupil, geologist, botanist, water-colourist, lecturer, letter-writer and prose stylist, Ruskin stands forth as probably the pre-eminent Victorian polymath. His advocacy of paintings and artists, his braveness within the face of opposed, uninformed feedback and his enlightened compassionate perspectives of the human situation display Ruskin as 'not of an age yet for all time'. those attributes the Chronology endeavours to indicate.
