The Mountain Gloom. c. 1856 by John Ruskin (1819-1900). Watercolor or drawing with wash. Source: Works, facing, VI, 416. [Compare Ruskin's geological illustrations for for Modern Painters IV, Chapter 13, "Of the Sculpture of Mountains: — Secondly, the Central Peaks]. This watercolor accompanies Ruskin's chapter "Mountain Gloom," but I assume the editors of the Library Edition added it to Ruskin's text. Scanned image and text by George P. Landow [This image may be used without prior permission for any scholarly or educational purpose.]
