The drawing has never been out of the frame which looks like it is a 1920s frame.The image measures 9.75x7 inches, the frame measures 14.5x12.5 inches. Ruskin is a well listed English artist known for his pencil drawings. Ruskin(1819-1900) was an English author, art critic and watercolorist, was born in London. Son of a wealthy wine merchant. On his frequent trips in Europe, he took an artists's and poet's delight both in landscape and works of art, especially medieval and Renaissance. His first great work, Modern Painters (5 volumes, 1843-60), began as a passionate defense of Turner's pictures, but became a study of the principles of Art. In The Seven Lamps Of Architecture (1849) and The Stones Of Venice (1851) he similarly treated the fundamentals of architecture. These principles enabled him, incidentally, to appreciate and defend the Pre-Raphaelites, then the target of violence and abuse.

To Ruskin the relationship between art, morality and social justice was of paramount importance and he increasingly became preoccupied with social reform. His concern inspired, among others, William Morris and Arnold Toynbee, whilst in the practical field he founded the Working Men' s college (1854) and backed with money the experiments of Octavia Hill in the management of house property. He advocated social reforms which later were adopted by all political parties old age pensions, universal free education, better housing.

Gothic was for Ruskin the expression of an integrated and spiritual civilization; classicism represented paganism and corruption; the use of cast iron, and the increasing importance of function in architecture and engineering seemed to him a lamentable trend.

He was Slade Professor of art at Oxford (1870-79) and (1883-84). His later works, eg. Sesame and Lillies (1865), The Crown Of Wild Olives (1866) and Fors Clavigera (1871 -74), contain the programme of social reform in which he was so interested.
