A local artist has presented his picture of St Mark’s Venice to the Octavia Hill Birthplace Museum.

Bill Rackley is a member of Ian Milburn’s art class and presented the painting to trust chairman Peter Clayton.

It will be displayed at the museum as part of the John Ruskin story. John Ruskin was the leading art critic of the Victorian era.
