Mountain Aiguilles Drawing
Mountain Aiguilles Drawing
Pen and ink, approx. ? × ? cm (image only). The editors of the Library Edition describe the image as “aiguilles” (Ruskin, Works, 2:364 n. 1). The intended location and a possible original image that Ruskin may have copied are unknown. The distant aiguilles are drawn with a light touch to suggest distance. In the darker foreground, a tiny figure perches precariously at the edge of a jutting rock to survey the scene.
