Water is expressed, in common drawings, by conventional lines, whose horizontality is supposed to convey the idea of its surface. In paintings, white dashes or bars of light are used for the same purpose. but these and all other such expedients are vain and absurd. A piece of calm water always contains a picture in itself, an exquisite reflection of the objects above it. If you give the time necessary to draw these reflections, disturbing them here and there as you see the breeze or current disturb them, you will get the effect of the water; but if you have not the patience to draw the reflections, no expedient will give you a true effect.

John Ruskin was the only child of first cousins. His father was a wine merchant whose wife and son accompanied him on business travels through Europe, during which Ruskin discovered art for the first time. He received his early education at King's College, London, then his B.A. and M.A. at Christ Church College, Oxford. Upon graduation from Oxford, Ruskin met the painter J. M. W. Turner and went on to praise the artist's work in his first publication, "Modern Painters" (1843). In 1870, Ruskin became the Slade Professor of Fine Art at Oxford. Ruskin wrote on a variety of subjects, and remains a major figure in the history of art criticism and of the literature of the Victorian Era; novelist George Eliot referred to Ruskin as "a prophet for his generation." Following a nervous breakdown, Ruskin died from influenza.
