Synopsis: John Everett Millais was one of the most successful and acclaimed British painters of the nineteenth century. A founder member of the radical Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, an acclaimed society portraitist, and an ambitious painter of historical themes, Millais ended his days as a Baronet and President of the Royal Academy. In this widely illustrated, thoughtful account of Millais's career, Jason Rosenfeld brings together biography, art history and an insightful and detailed analysis of individual paintings. Opening with a focused study of his much acclaimed, and now iconic Pre-Raphaelite paintings, in the second half of the book the author presents a fascinating reconsideration of the artist's often over looked later career.
