The Ruskin Society, originally established by John Howard Whitehouse at a meeting held at the Royal Society of Arts in 1932, was re-founded in London in 1997 by a group of Ruskin scholars and devotees. It aims to encourage a wider understanding of John Ruskin (1819-1900) and his contemporaries. It organises at least four events a year which seek to explain to the public the nature of Ruskin's theories and to place these in a modern context.Brantwood, Coniston
