    • The Stones of Venice
    • The Stones of Venice is written by John Ruskin. Thus much, however, it is necessary for the reader to know, that, when I planned the work, I had materials by me, collected at different times of sojourn in Venice during the last seventeen years, which it seemed to me might be arranged with little difficulty.

    • The Two Paths Quick View
    • The Two Paths
    • The Two Paths is written by John Ruskin. The study, however, of the effect of art on the mind of nations is one rather for the historian than for us; at all events it is one for the discussion of which we have no more time this evening. But I will ask your patience with me while I try to…

    • The Venetian School of Painting Quick View
    • The Venetian School of Painting
    • The Venetian School of Painting is written by Evelyn March Phillipps. Such a book does not pretend to vie with, much less to supersede, the masterly treatises on the subject which have from time to time appeared, or to take the place of exhaustive histories, such as that of Professor Leonello Venturi on the Italian primitives.

    • The Works of William Hogarth Quick View
    • The Works of William Hogarth
    • The Works of William Hogarth is written by John Trusler. The history opens, representing a scene crowded with all the monuments of avarice, and laying before us a most beautiful contrast, such as is too general in the world, to pass unobserved.

    • Under the Greenwood Tree is written by Thomas Hardy. This story of the Mellstock Quire and its old established west- gallery musicians, with some supplementary descriptions of similar officials in Two on a Tower, A Few Crusted Characters, and other places, is intended to be a fairly true picture.

    • Vigee Le Brun
    • Vigee Le Brun is written by Haldane MacFall. Like François Boucher, the great painter to the king, Elizabeth Vigée came to the pretty business with the advantage of being an artist's child; like him, she received her first lessons at an early age from her father; and, like him, she moved from earliest childhood in an atmosphere of art and…

    • Why Bewick Succeeded
    • Why Bewick Succeeded is written by Jacob Kainen. "A little engraving on wood was also done, but Bewick tells us that his master was uncomfortable in this field and almost always turned it over to him. His training, obviously, was of a rough and ready sort, based upon serviceable but routine engraving on metal. There was no study of drawing,…
