The Stones of Massilia

Work in progress

Between 1851 and 1853 the English art historian John Ruskin published “The Stones of Venice”, a treatise on Venetian art and architecture. In his book, Ruskin surveyed the history of architecture over the course of three eras: Byzantine, Gothic, and Renaissance. Following the same model of Ruskin, during the course of my stay for three months in Marseille, I will be trying to summarize my observations and views on the art, architecture, and society of the city.
