Cassel Market Square [drawing]
Cassel Market Square

Pen and ink, approx. 8.6 × 9.6 cm (image only). The editors of the Library Edition describe the image as a “sketch of a street with quaint architecture—in the foreground market women” (Ruskin, Works, 2:344 n. 1). The vignette is drawn in the manner of Samuel Prout (17831852), suggesting without specifically copying such marketplace scenes as Hotel de Ville Brussels and Ghent in Facsimiles.
