Sovereign Films announces renewed sponsorship for the annual London Lecture of the Ruskin Foundation
Still from Effie Gray.

LONDON.- Sovereign Films announces renewed sponsorship for the annual London Lecture of the Ruskin Foundation which takes place this year on 6 October. This year’s lecturer will be Dame Fiona Reynolds, Master of Emmanuel College, Cambridge, whose subject will be ‘Ruskin and the Fight for Beauty’.

Sovereign Films, makers of the film, Effie Gray, are extending their sponsorship of the lecture series for a further five years until 2023, as a contribution to the celebration of the bicentenary of Ruskin’s birth in 2019. Sovereign Films will also continue to support The Stones of Venice Fund, which makes bursaries available for scholars wishing to study the archive of Ruskin’s manuscripts, books and drawings at the Ruskin Library, Lancaster University.

The Ruskin Foundation will present its third annual London lecture, sponsored by Sovereign Films, on Thursday 6th October at the Royal Geological Society, Burlington House, Piccadilly at 6.30 p.m. The event is free of charge.

Fiona Reynolds is a former Director-General of the National Trust, and her book The Fight for Beauty was published to critical acclaim by Oneworld earlier this year.

Andreas Roald, CEO of Sovereign Films, said: “John Ruskin's distinct eye for beauty and omnipresent brilliance seems to reach out to us every day, on some level, in this 21st Century life we lead. He was visionary and forward thinking; and, at the same time brought us back to the past, to deeply appreciate and never forget where civilization was born. Sovereign Films is proud to extend our sponsorship and celebrate the important legacy of John Ruskin.”

The Ruskin Foundation London Lecture was established in 2014 to explore the significance of Ruskin’s ideas in a contemporary context. Previous speakers have been the Hon. Anna Somers Cocks, OBE, CEO of The Art Newspaper, and Andrew Hill, Associate Editor and Management Editor of The Financial Times.

The Ruskin Foundation London lecture is free. Admission is by ticket only. Tickets may be booked at
