John Ruskin - Dumbarton Castle

In 1838 Ruskin toured Scotland with his parents. The use of strong blue and yellow in this work reflects the influence of David Cox on the young Ruskin. The catalogue of drawings produced by E. T. Cook and A. Wedderburn dates this work to 30 July 1838 (Works of Ruskin, XXXVIII, Catalogue of Drawings, p. 248).
