River Drawing
River Drawing
Pen and ink, approx. ? × ? cm (image only). The editors of the Library Edition describe the image as “a river between steep banks, snow mountains in the distance” (Ruskin, Works, 2:364 n. 1). The intended location and a possible original image that Ruskin may have copied are unknown. Note that the drawingʼs width requires it to have been affixed to MS IX broadside; this drawing, therefore, like Li├Ęge, could not have accommodated text on the same page.
