Our activity in February-17 Kalos members dedicated to John Ruskin.
Author of "The Stones of Venice" and "Into this last", John Ruskin was one of the favourite authors of Leo Tolstoy, who used more than 100 of John's quotes in just one of his works - the famous "Wise Thoughts for Every Day" , and greatly influenced Mahatma Gandi, who translated "Into this Last" to Hindu. He was born February 8th and on this day we celebrate the birthday of an exceptional human thinker who was also a painter, art-critic and Seer, centuries ahead of his time.
How come its happens, that one Scottish protean artist inspired some of the greatest minds all around the world, and after more than 100 years his heritage is only ncreasing in value? Some like an answer we'll publish in quotes of John Ruskin below.
Post will be updated during the month, and now we going to celebrate and discuss the ideas - to arrange the educational art-meetings of this Enlightener from Edinburgh.
