‘A Strange, Bright, Gifted Boy’

A dedicated exhibition on John Ruskin’s Secretary, Laurence (‘Laurie’) Hilliard: ‘A Strange, Bright, Gifted Boy’.  Hilliard was the most familiar face at Brantwood for six years, entertaining all with his sense of humour, his love of boats and his profound devotion to Ruskin.  He was also a talented artist, whose potential was just being recognised when he died of pleurisy of a yacht in the Aegean, aged just thirty-two.
