Cassel Hill [drawing]
Cassel Hill

Pen and ink, approx. 8 × 12.9 cm (image only). The editors of the Library Edition describe the image as a “sketch of trees in the foreground on either side, and a town with three windmills in the distance” (Ruskin, Works, 2:342 n. 3). Between the coulisses of the foreground foliage, the distant town sits atop an eminence, which suggests Cassel Hill, mentioned in the poem following the illustration. Two small figures occupy the foreground, one seated and one standing and pointing at the distant scene.
