The Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, presents this exhibition of more than 50 watercolors and drawings by American followers of John Ruskin, including nearly a dozen rarely seen works by Ruskin himself, through July 8. Ruskin, the 19th-century British writer and watercolorist, never came to the United States, but had great influence on a group of artists who considered themselves American Pre-Raphaelites and who specialized in small landscapes and floral studies.
