According to Wikipedia: "John Ruskin (8 February 1819 – 20 January 1900) was a British art critic and social thinker, also remembered as an author, poet and artist. His essays on art and architecture


were extremely influential in the Victorian and Edwardian eras... Ruskin's influence extends far beyond the field of art history. The author Leo Tolstoy described him as, "one of those rare men who think with their heart." Marcel Proust was a Ruskin enthusiast and helped translate his works into French. Mahatma Gandhi quoted Ruskin's Unto this last frequently, and even translated the work into Gujarati, calling it Sarvodaya. He spoke often of the influence Ruskin had on his philosophy.[15] Ruskin's views also attracted Oscar Wilde's imagination in the late 19th century."
